Equipped with a manual timer and a single adjustment knob, settings may be adjusted quickly and easily. The fixed tension 60 kV x-ray generator provides an excellent compromise between contrast and image definition. The pre-programmed electronic timer automatically calculates settings depending on the teeth to be examined and the bodyweight of the patient. The system is equipped with adjustable tension 60 or 70 kV to accentuate contrast or levels of gray shading according to the examination required.

Caution points out procedures that you must follow precisely to avoiddamage to the system or any of its components, yourself or others,loss of data, or corruption of files in software applications.

Operate and maintain it in strict compliance with thesafety precautions and operating instructions contained in this manual. However, anyone attempting to operate the system must befully aware of potential safety hazards.

The product mustbe installed, maintained, and serviced by qualified service personnelaccording to procedures and preventive maintenance schedules in theproduct service manual. If your product does not operate as expected,contact your Service Representative. Yourradiology system must be installed in premises that comply withapplicable standards. Consider these limitations before making any decisionbased on quantitative values.

If you have any doubts, consult your SalesRepresentative. Take precautions evenwhen following the instructions in this manual. Use conventional commercially available equipment to protect yourselfand your patients against scattered radiation risks. Do not plug in or turn on the system if hazardoussubstances are detected in the environment.

If these substances aredetected after the system has been turned on, do not attempt to turn offthe unit or unplug it. Evacuate and ventilate the area before turning offthe system. This unit must only be operated by legally qualified persons. The cover of the unit must not be opened by the user. Inspection and maintenance operations should only be carried out by anapproved technician.

From this location, visual or audio communicationmust be maintained with the patient, together with access to the controlinterface during exposure. Following an earthquake, ensure that the unit is operating properly beforeusing it again. Failure to observe this precaution may expose patients to hazards.

WARNINGX- ray equipment can be hazardous to patients and the operator if theexposure safety factors and operating instructions are not observed. Ensure that any parts of the unit that may come into contact with the patientand the operator have been disinfected after each patient has been exposedto x- ray s. In the European Union, this symbol indicates that when thelast user wishes to discard this product, it must be sent toappropriate facilities for recovery and recycling.

Teeth selector Bitewing selector Occlusal selector Using the System PositioningPositioning the patientEvery dental specialist would like to produce high-quality intraoralradiographs that reveal maximum detail with the minimum dose to thepatient, show teeth and anatomic structures accurately with a minimum ofdistortion or magnification, and have optimal density and contrast tomaximize their use for the detection of dental diseases.

To obtain high-quality intraoral radiography with maximum details, take extracare in all three steps of the radiography process: positioning the patient, thex- ray generator, and the imaging system; exposing the film or the sensor;and processing the film. Seat the patient with the sagittal plane vertical. Figure Patient positioningPositioning the x- ray generatorThe scissor arm allows you to accurately position the generator for any typeof exposure. The beam-limiting device maintains a distance of at least 20 cm 8 in.

Paralleling techniqueThe positioning tool used in the paralleling technique allows you to align thebeam and the receptor. An adapted collimator reduces the dosage by limitingsurface exposure.

Bisecting techniqueWhen using the bisecting technique, do not use a rectangular collimator. Thislimits the risk of misaligning the x- ray beam and the image receptor. Properly placing the receptor is critical. Check your dental radiography textfor information about proper placement of the imaging receptor.

The paralleling technique generally reduces the risk ofsuch errors. However, if you improperly position the system, angulationerrors can occur angulation of the receptor to the tooth itself. If the exit pattern of the beam is not aligned with the imaging receptor, thenpart of the radiograph will not be exposed to radiation and the finalradiograph will have some clear unexposed areas.

The imaging receptor is marked to indicate the tube side. If the orientation isnot correct, the resulting radiograph is lighter and may show artifacts, suchas foil pattern or sensor cable.

ExposureExposure ParametersBecause each receptor film, digital sensor, or phosphor plate has its ownsensitivity to x- ray radiation, the choice of receptor affects the exposureparameters. For instance, sensitivity class for conventional dental films ischaracterized with a letter D, E, or F where F is more sensitive than E, and Emore sensitive than D.

Consequently, the required dose for the correctexposure goes down with each increase in sensitivity. Like film, different digital sensors have varying sensitivities, so you need toadjust exposure for sensors as well.

These modes are programmed when installing theequipment based on your local imaging systems, as indicated in Tables 9 to Turn on the system. Select the exposure mode by pressing quickly the button,position by position, until the correct mode is displayed correct indicator lights up. Select the type of patient by pressing quickly the button:child, adult, large. Select the tooth or the exposure time in case of manualmode by turning the selection knob.

The unit displays the exposure time. Acquire the image. The x- ray emission indicator lights up andan audible signal is emitted. It indicates that the x- ray emission wasinterrupted prematurely and that there is a risk of underexposure. Read the emitted dose.

Quickly press the selection knob. Section 6 provides a table with emitted dosagebased on exposure times see Table Develop the film under safelight conditions in an automaticprocessor or manually. Be sureto maintain the mechanically and keep the solutions replenished.

Setting Modes1. Select the mode to be set by pressing and holding the selectionbutton for at least 3 seconds, as many time as necessary to get thedesired LED lighted.

Press and hold simultaneously for at least 3 seconds the selectionbutton and the knob until the display blinks. The current setting isdisplayed. Modify the setting by rotating the knob until the new setting isdisplayed refer to the setting table as indicated in Tables 9 to This system can prohibit any exposure as long asthe generator did not cool.

The error message I 01 appears on thedisplay unit, a red LED lights up on the control unit, and an audible signalis emitted until the cooling period is over. If you turn off power, the microprocessordoes not calculate the cooling time, and for safety reasons considersthat the system has not gone into the cooling cycle.

If the exposure is interrupted such as by releasing the key , the audibleand visible manipulator alarm is activated and the remaining exposuretime is displayed. This information makes it easier to decide whether todevelop the film or to start another exposure if the remaining time isshort, you may develop the film.

To stop the manipulator alarm, press the selection knob. The self-test checks the display, the alarm lights and all the systems. If the self-test detects a problem, an error code is displayed.


KODAK 2200 intraoral X-ray system is unveiled

Optimized for both film and digital radiography usage, the system includes a redesigned electronic timer that makes the setting of exposure parameters failsafe. It also offers a new mounting configuration for users of the popular Trophy IRIX X-ray systems — providing a convenient, cost-effective upgrade option for these customers. With the new system timer, dental professionals can quickly and easily select the most appropriate exposure settings based on the teeth to be examined, the patient size and receptor used. It includes an intuitive control wheel for easy tooth and program selection, and automatically calculates the optimum exposure time and dose settings. Additionally, the dose level is displayed after each exposure so radiation dose can be tracked and monitored.
