Sidexis 4 update brings all images together

February 27, 2017

Dentsply Sirona’s updated platform launches a new experience for the dental practitioner.

After a successful launch of SIDEXIS 4 at the IDS 2015, Dentsply Sirona has updated its standard-setting software, enhancing the already robust platform to become a true all-inclusive imaging hub for every dental practice.

Seamless workflow

As the central hub for integration and all diagnostic imaging data, SIDEXIS 4 allows for the compilation of data in a single software, enabling clinicians to visually present patient information in one unified environment.

The SIDEXIS 4 “Lightbox” feature is a place to showcase digital images – intraoral, panoramic and cephalometric X-rays, CBCT scans, FaceScan and intraoral camera images – on the same screen at the same time. The Lightbox reportedly provides ideal conditions for all elements of digital imaging, from diagnosis to patient consultation.

The “Timeline” feature presents an overview of a patient’s entire imaging history and can be viewed at a glance, giving clinicians an intuitive time dimension to their diagnostic options.

The “Compare” feature lets you display images, both 2D and 3D, side by side for instant references to changes in dental anatomy – all without switching from program to program or window to window. Putting all relevant data into one screen is designed to help support diagnosis and treatment progress.

Schick 33 fully integrated

In the latest update, Sidexis 4 brings Dentsply Sirona’s industry-leading intraoral sensor, Schick 33, to the fore. Sidexis 4’s new intraoral integration provides an intuitive image capture workflow built from 25 years of intraoral imaging experience with easy access to Schick 33’s dynamic enhancement tools and exposure advisor feature. Now, clinicians can detect and diagnose situations and discuss treatment plans with a patient based on images from multiple sources all on one screen, in one software platform. There’s no more switching between imaging programs.

Another benefit to using Schick within SIDEXIS 4 is the software’s error-proof sensor placement positioning guide. An animated visual of anatomy and placement shows staff the correct holder and where to place the sensor for each image.

For the office today and tomorrow

SIDEXIS 4 reportedly offers revolutionary functionality, allowing clinicians the ability to implement their clinical workflow with an easy-to-use, intuitive interface that prepares an office for the future. The SIDEXIS platform is created for every office at every stage of office growth. For example, offices only utilizing Schick sensors can take advantage of the software’s benefits and be well-prepared to accept 3D images from a specialist’s office if their patients have to be referred out for scans. Even third-party 3D images can easily be imported and used seamlessly within the software through a quick and simple import feature. When the time comes to add 3D, Galileos Implant add-on for integrated implantology is also available. In short, an office is said to be prepared for any situation that might arise in their digital imaging needs with the SIDEXIS platform.

Planning with confidence

The ability to set up individually configured filters offers an improved patient evaluation and communication process. Measurement and annotations tools in the software are engineered to aid clinicians in the day-to-day workflow. Remote control of the TENEO treatment center – including the automatic headrest setting and ApexLocator – is available directly within the software.

Universal compatibility

The SIDEXIS 4 software platform is open to all major image formats, readily accepting files obtained by intraoral, panoramic and cephalometric X-rays, 2D and 3D CBCT systems, intraoral cameras, FaceScanner and more.
