Carestream's RVG celebrates 30 years of great imaging

Issue 10

ATLANTA - The dental industry was changed forever with the advent of RadioVisioGraphy (RVG) in 1982, and now Carestream Dental is celebrating its 30th year of providing dental practitioners worldwide with unparalleled image quality.

ATLANTA - The dental industry was changed forever with the advent of RadioVisioGraphy (RVG) in 1982, and now Carestream Dental is celebrating its 30th year of providing dental practitioners worldwide with unparalleled image quality.

Invented and patented by visionary French dentist Dr. Francis Mouyen, RVG imaging delivers digital images instantly, creating a more efficient workflow for practices and improving patient communication.
Since its introduction, RVG has established a continuing tradition of innovation in digital radiography, including milestones such as offering the first sensor to provide >20 lp/mm resolution and a wireless sensor that can easily be shared between operatories. Today, Carestream Dental’s RVG family features three sensor options for practitioners.
Serving as entry point into digital dental radiography, the RVG 5100 provides practices with an ideal solution for basic intraoral imaging needs. With two sensor sizes available, this system is easy to use and delivers exceptional images (true resolution of 14 lp/mm) in seconds.
Introduced in 2006, the RVG 6100 offers optimal image resolution (>20 lp/mm) and delivers images in seconds. Perfect for multi-chair practices, this system is designed to streamline workflow with easy image capture, analysis and sharing. RVG 6100 sensors are available in three sizes, including a size 0 sensor for pediatric applications.
Delivering the same, best-in-class image quality as wired RVG 6100 sensors, the RVG 6500 system (introduced in 2010) uses proven Wi-Fi technology to eliminate the need for the sensors to have a wired connection to a computer. Offering unprecedented imaging flexibility, this system can be used in a variety of practice configurations, including multi-sensor and multi-computer environments. Available in three sizes, RVG 6500 sensors transfer images to operatory computers within seconds.
“The introduction of RVG imaging caused a significant shift in the oral health industry – a shift towards digital technology,” said Edward Shellard, DMD, chief marketing officer and director of business development for Carestream Dental. “Over the years, we’ve continued to develop and strengthen our offerings in the digital radiography category so our products meet clinicians’ diagnostic needs, integrate into practice workflows and are easy to use. From the invention of the digital sensor to the introduction of a wireless sensor that offers the highest image resolution, our line of RVG products has evolved to serve the ever-changing needs of our customers and their patients.”
Carestream Dental’s current RVG solutions integrate seamlessly with the company’s various imaging software programs. Additionally, Logicon Caries DetectorTM Software serves as a computer-aided diagnostic tool that helps practitioners locate and diagnose interproximal caries using a database of known caries problems.
Carestream Dental’s RVG sensors are built with rounded corners and rear-entry cables to ensure patients are comfortable. All sensors are also built with shock-resistant casing, providing maximum durability for a long lifespan.
