Hand-Held X-Ray

You expect the dentist or hygienist to leave the room once they set you up for an x-ray, but a new device may change that routine. The eight-pound Nomad x-ray machine from Aribex is a cordless, hand-held device.

Patients are set-up in the usual way, but instead of swinging a wall-mounted x-ray unit to the mouth, a tech snaps the x-ray while standing by the patient. The device exposes patients to less x-ray radiation than traditional machines.
