Best Practices for Display QA
The dental display quality assurance program is designed to optimize the display of digital images throughout the dental practice; to assure compliance with all state, federal, and professional guidelines; to improve the presentation and diagnostic interpretation of those images; and a total quality assurance solution from calibration to reporting that allows the dentist to concentrate on patient care.
We recommend starting with our FREE qualitative services which are compliant with the ADA Technical Report 1094 and the AAPM TG18 Report. You can start using the FREE qualitative assessment tool by creating a user account on this web site.
To ensure that the ambient light level is appropriate for primary diagnostic interpretation or secondary review of digital radiographic images, use the RightLight Monitor.
To improve diagnostic performance and provide for the highest display quality assurance, implement quantitative assessments using the PerfectLum Dental software and X-rite i1Display PRO colorimeter. You can start quantitative assessments by purchasing the PerfectLum Dental and i1Display PRO Bundle.
Remember: In order to obtain quality assurance for digital dental radiography, every component of the imaging chain should be assessed. The X-ray source can be assessed using the RaySafe ThinX or Solo Dent device. The x-ray sensor/receptor can be assessed using the DDQA radiographic phantom. Both of these devices can be purchased at the Dental Radiology QA website http://dentalradiologyqa.com
