CsI coated Fibre Optic Plates optimised for dental applications

Dental Imaging

High resolution, efficient and sensitive dental imaging scintillators allow for lower x-ray dose and optimum image quality.

In response to the growing demand for high quality digital images in dental radiography, we have applied our extensive experience in component technology to create a range of custom caesium iodide (CsI) based scintillators.  Our flexible manufacturing capabilities allow us to customise our products to meet the high performance demands of this market.  The resulting scintillation products allow you to choose the right level of performance that best suits your requirements and system application.

  1. Protective parylene layer(s) maintain the quality of the scintillator performance. 
  2. Optional absorber / reflector layer in conjunction with FOP choice, is used to fine tune performance to customers’ needs. 
  3. Caesium iodide coating provides state-of-the-art thallium doped scintillator with columnar structure. 
  4. Fibre optic plate X-ray blocking and image transmitting properties are key features of this multi-functional component. 
  5. CMOS / CCD image capture device and electronics

Typical applications

  • CsI Intra-Oral Excellent uniformity and ultra-high resolution imaging for intra-oral dental X-ray applications. 
  • CsI Panoramic Fast response, high resolution, dynamic image capture for dental X-ray of the upper and lower jaw. 
  • CsI Cephalometric Fast response, high resolution, dynamic image capture for dental X-ray of the cranio-maxillofacial regions. 
  • CsI Cone Beam CT High resolution, real time 3D imaging of the teeth and head for orthodontic and surgical procedures


Why Scintacor?

As an established authority in caesium iodide deposition, we have developed custom application techniques for superior to-the-edge coatings. These provide a best in class image area from the fibre optic plate (FOP). 

Our unique application techniques also offer a flexible sizing advantage, allowing us to produce components bespoke to the dimensions required by our customers’ systems. 

With flexible manufacturing facilities, we provide our customers with consistent quality for small and large production volumes
