Software, Digital Radiographic System, Dental
Definition : Digital radiography software designed to operate dental radiography systems and control/monitor a limited number of the dental radiographic system functions. This software usually interacts with a conventional dental radiographic unit, detectors, and monitors. It may also perform a variety of algorithms to facilitate the operation and analysis of the data and images (e.g., zooming, multi-image viewing) obtained during the dental radiographic procedure. Dental digital radiographic system software is intended to work only with one or a few models of dental radiographic systems and related devices, usually supplied by the same manufacturer. The software may also facilitate the processing and/or sending of data from the dental digital radiographic system to and from to a local patient information system located in the dentist's office and, when used in hospitals, to and from picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) and/or other hospital information systems. The software is not usually available separate from the dental radiographic system but may be updated (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the life of the equipment.
