KTI recently added support for intra-oral cameras, such as the OraCam, to its aMac digital radiography solution. While the aMac kit already comes with an intra-oral sensor for snapping digital images of teeth, intra-oral cameras can capture streaming video as well as still pictures.
David Krugman, vice-president of sales and marketing for KTI, told MacCentral that intra-oral cameras are useful devices because they provide a video record of an entire dental procedure. He noted that universities are already using them for teaching purposes, and a practicing dentist can keep the films in an archive in case patient complaints arise later.
The aMac kit includes software for storing and organizing images and video by patient. The application retains important information for each x-ray, which can be manipulated in a variety of ways and exported for use in another program.
Krugman also said that the aMac solution will add support for digital panoramic cameras, which capture full details of the mouth in one shot, in June.
