Myray is a wireless intraoral digital sensor using Bluetooth technology for image transmission. It features a sophisticated x-ray sensor that is capable of image acquisition at minimal exposure dosage. It’s worn by the patient and is powered by rechargeable batteries. With virtually no wires to a computer, no power supply, and no USB interface, myray broadcasts the image to a small, inexpensive USB key, which plugs directly into any PC computer.
RSV MAC comes with free MAC imaging software with no charge for extra versions. It is available in sizes 1 and 2 like other sensor-based systems. Plug-and-Play technology allows the user to swap between 2 sensors without having to touch the computer, and the software automatically positions it-self onto the next segment. The x-ray image produced by the RSV CCD-based sensor produces an image of superior diagnostic quality.
