Dental Caesium Iodide

Lower X-ray dose with maximised resolution and enhanced image quality are key advantages of using a Scintacor customised scintillation solution. We have applied our extensive experience in component technology, to create a range of custom dental caesium iodide (CsI) based scintillators.

Specifications

Intra-Oral Fibre Optic Scintillators – high resolution, custom format, intra oral, dental X-ray scintillators

The use of light-guiding micro-columnar CsI as the scintillating layer in Scintacor’s intra-oral devices, combined with X-ray blocking fibre optic faceplates (FOP) produces an exceptionally high resolution X-ray sensor for attachment to your CCD or CMOS based sensor. FOPs can be custom made in various sizes, thickness, and materials and the CsI layer thickness can also be tuned to either favour better signal to noise ratio (SNR) or resolution, or alternatively striking a balance between the two. Further performance customisation is possible by altering the reflector colour.

Generally, intra oral devices are available in fully encapsulated (FE) versions for greatest moisture resistance, but talk to us if you are making your own additional arrangements for moisture control as non FE versions can be discussed with lower costs and faster turnaround times.

Intra-oral fibre optic scintillators

Extra-Oral Fibre Optic Scintillators – high resolution, custom format, extra oral, X-ray scintillators for jaw and head X-ray scanning

The use of thicker, light-guiding micro-columnar CsI as the scintillating layer in Scintacor’s extra-oral devices, combined with high aspect ratio X-ray blocking fibre optic faceplates (FOPs), produces an exceptionally bright and high resolution X-ray sensor. Such devices are ideal for attachment to your CCD or CMOS based sensor or sensor array for jaw or head scanning applications. FOPs can be custom made in various sizes, thickness, and materials and the CsI layer thickness and reflector colour can also be tuned for the best balance between signal to noise ratio (SNR) and resolution. 

Jaw and head X-ray scanning are dynamic applications which benefit from the use of Scintacor’s low afterglow CsI to limit motion smearing.
