Article Description

Dental practices use multiple imaging modalities daily, and different systems produce data in various file formats, often requiring information to be stored in a particular software platform. This siloed approach to clinical image management can lead to challenges with efficiently using data for diagnosis, treatment planning, and patient education. However, practices and patients can benefit from implementation of a connected system that stores all patient radiography, photography, and 3D data sets in 1 platform that offers customization, efficiency, and flexibility.

Learning Topics

  • Understand the current landscape for clinical image management and its shortcomings due to multiple siloed image capture, storage, and viewing platforms
  • Learn how dental practices can benefit from having a central hub for all sources of clinical radiography and photography
  • Understand the efficiencies of connecting all imaging technologies to a central platform that can be a hub for communications and data.
  • Learn about the benefits of customization in image management and presentation.
  • Understand how advanced software can automate laborious tasks, enhance practice efficiency, and improve patient understanding of treatment proposals
