Adstra Systems, Toronto, has introduced a “Compare” Tool as part of its Adstra Imaging™ Dental Image-Management software. The Compare Tool allows orthodontists to automatically compare multiple images of the same tooth, taken at different times, with a simple click of a button.

The Compare Tool may be used for evaluating progress or deterioration over time or for viewing preprocedure and postprocedure images simultaneously. To use the Compare Tool, simply click on the “Compare” button while viewing a particular image. A new screen then appears that displays the current image along with the last image taken of that tooth (or teeth). The tool automatically retrieves previous images, one at a time, in reverse chronological order, displaying up to nine images simultaneously.

The software allows clinicians to capture, enhance, and store images from various digital devices, intraoral or digital cameras, and flatbed scanners.
