|20140056415||DENTAL POSITIONING SYSTEM - A dental positioning system and method employing the system are described. The system includes at least one receptor holder having an arm extending from a receptor grip. The receptor grip retains a receptor in a fixed position within the grip and with respect to the arm. The system also includes an alignment ring having a window formed therein and having at least one opening corresponding to the at least one receptor holder. The opening is constructed to receive the arm of the receptor holder such that the receptor is substantially centered with respect to the window.||02-27-2014|
|20130022175||SEALED SENSOR SYSTEMS, APPARATUSES AND METHODS - A sensor that is at least partially covered by a sheath, and a positioning arm that is electrically coupled to the sensor, and arranged outside of the sheath, such that a hygienic barrier is formed around the sensor. The sensor is used for filmless dental radiography and the positioning arm enables positioning of the sensor in a patient's mouth. The positioning arm includes a contact that pierces the sheath and establishes an electrical connection with the sensor when the positioning arm is coupled to the sensor.||01-24-2013|
|20090274267||SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR AUTOMATIC JAW MEASUREMENT FOR PANORAMIC RADIOLOGY - A method of conducting a panoramic x-ray examination. The method includes generating a signal representing a pressure map of an anatomical region of interest, calculating an imaging layer based on the generated signal, and generating a scan based on the calculated imaging layer.||11-05-2009|
|20090166545||SHIELDING AN IMAGING ARRAY FROM X-RAY NOISE - An electronic imaging sensor, which has an improved immunity to noise caused by unwanted x-rays, images an object by collecting charge carriers produced in the sensor when the object is exposed to x-rays. One or more shielding areas are formed proximate the sensor to capture or sweep away any undesirable charge carriers generated by the unwanted x-rays. The shielding areas extend deeper beneath the surface of the sensor than the depth at which the desired charge carriers corresponding to the object being imaged is collected. The shielding areas capture charge carriers formed by the unwanted x-rays, which penetrate into the sensor to a greater depth than the depth at which the desired charge carriers are collected. In this way, the undesirable charge carriers are captured near the region where they are generated and before they migrate towards the surface where they can be collected and manifest as noise in the resulting image of the object.||07-02-2009|
