Dental imaging

I just read your editorial on dental imaging (Vision Systems Design, May 1998, p. 84). Perhaps you have found a new product by now (www.schicktech.com) that digitizes dental x-rays using a CCD. Perhaps avoiding the need to use film and environmentally undesirable developing chemicals would win your dentist over. I do think this is the wave of the future in dental imaging.

We have used this imager as the backplane of an x-ray spectrometer designed to calibrate the high voltage applied to x-ray sources used in mammography.
