ORTHOPHOS SL by Dentsply Sirona Imaging Wins Dental Excellence Award 2015

The online trade journal named ORTHOPHOS SL x-ray unit by Dentsply Sirona Imaging “Best New Imaging Device”. The award was presented at the Chicago Midwinter Meeting 2016.


The American online dental magazine, DrBicuspid.com, honoured the ORTHOPHOS SL by Dentsply Sirona Imaging with the Dental Excellence Award 2015 for Best New Imaging Device. The digital x-ray unit for 2D and 3D images with innovative imaging technologies beat five other contenders in the semi-final of two rounds of voting. The nominees for the Dental Excellence Award included a total of 65 products in nine categories.

Two innovative imaging processes provide the highest level of sharpness: Firstly, the Direct Conversion Sensor used here for the first time ensures better utilisation of x-ray beams by converting them directly into electrical signals. This allows improved image quality even with the lowest radiation dose. Furthermore, ORTHOPHOS SL stands out due to its unique reconstructive Sharp Layer process. It generates several thousand individual projections during a single rotation – a digital reconstruction that results in reliable sharpness.

The nominees and winners of the coveted Dental Excellence Award, which was presented at the Dental Society Midwinter Meeting at the end of February in Chicago, are selected by the readers of DrBicuspid.com. The annual Midwinter Meeting is the most important industry event on the American continent.
