Sirona Dental Systems will launch its Xios intraoral sensor system at the California Dental Association's fall meeting in San Francisco next week, the company announced.

The system allows practitioners to capture digital x-rays by using an Ethernet or USB module. And with Sirona's Sidexis XG software, practitioners can view digital x-rays directly on any computer monitor or the office network without license fees.

The Ethernet (wall module) can be integrated into any network. Using a large-sized multicolor display, the user can confirm patient information prior to taking the image. Various LCD colors indicate the current operational status. The wall module also allows the user to plug in two sensors simultaneously.

The USB module can be connected to any PC, allowing sensors to be used anywhere they are needed. The module also features LED indicators of system status.

The Xios sensors are available in two sizes and are designed to be "robust and ergonomic," according to Sirona.

"The thin cable connection, beveled edges, and anatomically rounded corners allow for quick and easy positioning in the patient's mouth," Sirona said. "The Active Pixel CMOS sensors (pixel size: 15 µm) achieve a perfect balance between image quality and speed."
