Teledyne DALSA: better images at lower dose

Teledyne DALSA has developed cutting edge image sensor technology for dental radiography, including cone beam computed tomography (CBCT), panoramic, cephalometric, and intra-oral dental imaging. Our sensors are designed specifically for X-ray applications, and offer significant advantages over traditional film or existing electronic imagers. 

Seeing is believing: compare these images of a compacted molar and see for yourself how much more detail and how much less noise Teledyne DALSA delivers, even at drastically reduced X-ray dosage.

Note the clearer, more detailed images from the Teledyne DALSA CMOS intra-oral detectors. Note also the detail in this impacted molar, highlighted in the Teledyne DALSA 64 mR image. Only two other detectors caught it, and both used far higher x-ray dose.

What makes us better

Seeing is believing. Click for an interactive line pair image comparisonThanks to exceptionally low electronic noise floors, our sensors deliver exceptionally wide dynamic range for image quiality that does not degrade at low doses. Teledyne DALSA's sophisticated architectures also prevents sensor saturation due to overexposure at higher doses. Teledyne DALSA's superior pixel designs simultaneously yield better resolution and better contrast for the highest diagnostic image quality available. This allows easier diagnosis and fewer re-takes.

Teledyne DALSA's CMOS focuses on Cone Beam CT, Intra-oral and frame based panoramic applications. Our TDI CCDs offer a new level in performance and value for panoramic and cephalometric applications. 

With radiation-hard pixel designs for longer device lifetime Teledyne DALSA's sensors will provide consistent image quality over the long term. With package encapsulation technology designed for harsh environments, our sensors willwithstand shocks and vibrations as well as repeated cleanings in the dental office.
