ATLANTA, GA – March 12, 2015 – LED Medical Diagnostics Inc. (“LED Medical” or “the Company”) has announced that its subsidiary, LED Dental, has officially launched the new RIOSensor Intraoral Radiography System from RAY Co., Ltd. (“RAY”), a spin-off of Samsung Electronics, in the USA and Canada. As the latest dental imaging product from RAY, the RIOSensor embraces their history of providing high-quality, dependable technology platforms at a great value. The sensor officially premiered at the 150th Annual Chicago Midwinter Meeting last week.
Boasting true resolution of >20 line pairs/mm, the RIOSensor provides image quality that is among the best in the industry. Built to deliver exceptional precision, RIOSensor images enhance the clinician’s ability to improve radiographic diagnosis through a variety of custom filters to optimize sharpness and contrast for endodontics, periodontics and caries diagnosis.
“As clinicians, great image quality allows us to take our diagnostic capabilities to new heights,” said Jeffrey Brooks, D.M.D., Vice President of Imaging for LED Dental. “However, image resolution alone is not enough to meet the demands of the modern dental practice. The RIOSensor also delivers enhanced durability and reliability to ensure a worry-free technology experience.”
“RIOSensors provide a shock-absorption system for protection against drops, bites, and impacts, while a reinforced cable connection ensures durability at a point known for failure in other systems. The slim, proprietary cable design allows for extreme flexibility, while maintaining a high level of structural integrity to deliver years of worry-free use,” added Dr. Brooks.
Doctors and patients alike can rely on the RIOSensor for both safety and comfort. The sensor housing is hermetically sealed and water-tight to allow for submersible disinfection, preventing cross-contamination and damage to the sensor’s electronic components. The extremely flexible cable provides for effortless positioning based upon any diagnostic need. Available in two sizes with tapered edges, rounded corners and a thickness of only 5.3 mm, RIOSensors ensure patients maintain an exceptional level of comfort during examinations.
Simplicity and efficiency are the hallmarks of the RIOSensor’s clinical workflow. Active acquisition technology means that the sensor is always ready to capture images when needed, with no user intervention required to ready the sensor. The direct USB connection makes in-line boxes, buttons, and controls obsolete. The process of obtaining high-quality images is as easy as positioning the sensor, taking the x-ray, and reviewing the image. And, integration with LED Imaging Software and a practice management system means clinical data is directly imported into the patient’s chart.
Finally, the RIOSensor ensures exceptional peace of mind, with a standard two-year warranty and optional lifetime product maintenance with no deductible, allowing clinicians to keep their focus off of their technology and on caring for their patients.
“We are proud to be launching RAY’s RIOSensor in both the US and Canadian dental markets, bringing a new level of quality, dependability, and diagnostic confidence backed by reliable technology to dental and specialty practices across North America,” said Dr. David Gane, CEO of LED Medical Diagnostics. “With last year’s very successful entry of the RAYSCAN Alpha Extraoral Imaging system into the dental imaging market, developing great intraoral imaging technology is the next logical progression for RAY.”
“LED Dental has continued to be our trusted partner in delivering imaging solutions to the U.S. and Canadian markets,” adds Dr. Sangchul Lee, CEO of RAY Company. “We are excited to further that relationship with our latest product release.”
