In order to provide quality assurance (QA) for digital dental radiography every component in the imaging chain should be evaluated. This includes the x-ray source, the image receptor/sensor and most importantly the diagnostic image display system. If your display is not performing optimally you could be missing subtle changes in the radiographic image which represent dental disease. The American Dental Association (ADA), American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) and the National Council on Radiation Protection (NCRP) all recommend that regular quality assurance assessments be made for any diagnostic display.
Dental Display QA provides a one-stop source for all your display QA needs. By creating a user account you will have access to a FREE quality assurance assessment using either the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) Diagnostic Imaging test pattern or the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) TG18-QC test pattern.
All display QA test results are recorded and stored in your secure password protected account. You can review the performance of every display in your dental practice and generate reports to verify your compliance with state, federal, and professional guidelines. The best part is that the entire procedure can be performed by any dental staff member in only a few minutes and of course the cost is FREE.
