Relying on the company’s new EveryShot X-Ray Capture technology, the Clio Prime Digital X-Ray Sensor illuminates 16,384 shades of gray in every image.
SOTA Imaging has introduced the Clio Prime Digital X-Ray Sensor. According to the company, this product is a culmination of decades of digital x-ray sensor innovation, featuring EveryShot X-Ray Capture technology created to provide superior image quality, a new capsule design for extra durability and easy x-ray positioning, with built-in integration capabilities for a smooth workflow.
The Clio Prime sensor reportedly captures 16,384 shades of gray in every image. The sensor’s new EveryShot X-Ray Capture technology was developed to ensure that each one of those shades of gray is used to provide excellent contrast across a wide range of exposure levels. According to the company, with this capability, users can reduce the need for retakes and provide a confident diagnosis, even with low-power portable x-ray tubes.
Clio Prime also features a new capsule with a ComfyCorner design. The anatomically aligned design enables easy positioning for practitioners throughout an FMX. The clipped corner shape of the sensor reportedly improves anterior and posterior positioning while smoothing out patient contact points, increasing comfort for all exams from posterior periapicals to vertical bitewings. According to Sota Imaging, Clio Prime is smaller than standard size 2 sensors for better patient comfort.
The company has also rolled out a pediatric version, Clio Pedo, which includes all the Clio Prime features but is designed for the perfect pediatric fit at 24.53 x 36.36 mm.
The Clio Prime sensor is designed to be durable and features a hard outer capsule and shock-absorbing bumpers. The cable has also been customized so patients bite on the positioner, not the cable.
The sensor integrates with Dexis, Eaglesoft, Patterson Imaging, Schick CDR, Sidexis, Carestream, and more.
SOTA Imaging is offering a free trial of the new sensors through its “Demo By Mail” program, where practitioners can try the Clio Prime for 7 days, no strings attached. According to a press release from the company, it will ship the sensor at no charge, walk practitioners through the setup, and support them throughout the trial.
