INFINITT launches PACS for dentists

INFINITT North America has introduced a Dental PACS solution that includes a viewing workstation, acquisition gateway and an image archive system.

The web-based PACS acquires images from panoramic or cephalometric devices or intra-oral sensors and displays them on a DICOM PACS viewer. The system can be interfaced with a HIS or RIS and offers a DICOM modality worklist, according to the Phillipsburg, N.J.-based company.

The viewer has a display mode for dental PACS: FMX (full mouth x-ray) mode displays patient’s total teeth position and provides a comparison function with a panoramic image, INFINITT said.

The company said that the system supports a local database to keep images for at least one month, as well as a long-term electronic archive. Images can be stored uncompressed, preserving the original 12-bit raw data or downscaled to 8-bit JPEG compressed images.
