The Benefits Of A Handheld X-Ray
Benefits of Handheld X-Rays In Your Dental Practice
You may be wondering why you should upgrade from the traditional x-ray machine in your dental office to a portable x-ray machine, such as the XTG Handheld X-Ray made by Digital DOC. Read on and discover some of the top benefits of handheld x-rays that you will miss if you don’t upgrade to these smaller devices.
Handheld X-Rays Provide Easy Portability
One of the biggest benefits of handheld x-rays is implied in their name. The equipment is portable and is therefore easy to move from one operator to another each time radiography work is needed.
This means that you will no longer have to move your patients from the operatory to a standalone radiography room if those patients require radiology services. Thus, you will spare your patients the inconvenience of moving from one room to another. Your staff will also save the time that would have been allocated to escorting the patient to and from the radiology room. In short, portable or handheld x-rays bring radiography services straight to the dental chair.
Handheld X-Rays are User-Friendly
Another benefit that you will enjoy when you upgrade to a handheld x-ray machine is that your staff will no longer spend a lot of time setting up the equipment in order to capture x-ray images of your patients. Your staff simply point the XTG Handheld X-Ray where images are needed and the machine does the rest. You don’t even have to plug it anywhere, the rechargeable battery can hold sufficient power to take close to two hundred images before you ever need to recharge it.
Handheld X-Rays Provide Higher Levels of Safety
An important benefit that may not be immediately noticeable is the greater safety offered to your staff and patients by the handheld x-ray machine. A number of factors make the XTG Handheld X-Ray superior in safety to the traditional x-ray machines. First, the inbuilt shield prevents radiation from being scattered to the exposed parts of the body while dental x-rays are being taken. Secondly, the compact nature of the equipment means that it uses less power than the bulky traditional radiology machines. Consequently, this smaller amount of power reduces the magnitude of the radiation that would have caused any safety concerns for both patients and dental office staff. Needless to say, your energy bill will also be lower at the end of the month.
Superior Image Quality with Handheld X-Rays
The XTG Handheld X-Ray also has the distinction of producing high-quality radiology images that make diagnosis easier for you and your staff at the dental office. The image quality is so high that you can show your patients what you have captured and they will have no doubts about the diagnosis that you make and the treatment plan you recommend to deal with the problem discovered. The possibility of human error reduces drastically during diagnosis when such superior tools are availed to your staff.
Space Economy with Handheld X-Rays
You cannot talk about a handheld camera and forget to mention the space this device frees up in your practice. As you may know, space comes at a premium, and it is wasteful for you to postpone upgrading to portable x-ray equipment like the XTG Handheld X-Ray. Why would you set aside an entire room just to house your traditional radiology equipment when a handheld device can free up that space to set up another operatory? Reduce your operational costs by acquiring a portable or handheld x-ray machine from Digital DOC.
