3DISC’s New FireCR Dental Reader Supports Digital Imaging Needs of Veterinary Practices & Veterinary Dental Clinics

Press Release, November 22nd, 2013

As business competitiveness increases, veterinary dental services have become increasingly important for the success of many veterinary practices and clinics. 3DISC Imaging’s next-generation FireCR Dental Reader offers a number of new features and capabilities that enhance productivity and support efforts to provide the best veterinary dental care.

Designed to provide rapid, high-quality reading of reusable dental imaging plates, the FireCR Dental Reader’s small footprint—about the size of a shoebox—allows it to integrate into even the most space-challenged veterinary practices and dental clinics. The FireCR Dental Reader also features 3DISC’s new QuantorTab software, which can be conveniently downloaded from an app store for use on tablet computers running Android and iOS operating systems. The software features an easy-to-use touch screen interface that provides immediate access to an animal’s dental images from anywhere in the practice.

“Veterinary practices and clinics today are increasingly looking to digital imaging solutions,” said Sigrid Smitt-Jeppesen, CEO of 3DISC Americas. “Our specialized dental CR reader allows veterinary dental x-rays to be seamlessly integrated into a practice’s digital imaging workflow, enhancing productivity and efficiency.”

For practices that do not yet have the dental imaging volume for a dedicated FireCR Dental Reader, 3DISC also has introduced a unique new veterinary dental cassette that fills the gap¬–allowing practices to scan dental imaging plates using the FireCR Flash Veterinary Reader that they employ for their general imaging needs. “This ‘dental ready’ capability provides a cost-effective dental imaging solution,” said Thomas Weldingh, CEO of 3DISC Europe. “As a practice’s dental imaging needs grow, they can simply add a FireCR Dental Reader for increased image quality. This important option is a reflection of 3DISC’s commitment to providing flexibility that helps practices grow.”

3DISC also has introduced the FireID RFID Reader, which can be connected via USB cable to the FireCR Dental workstation, providing quick and accurate registration of data relevant to each animal. The system ensures that key data are automatically assigned to the correct patient file, including the scanned image, imaging plate size, and serial number of the imaging plate—critical for busy veterinary practices.

The FireCR Dental Reader will be available worldwide in the first quarter of 2014. It is the newest addition to 3DISC’s growing line of compact, affordable CR systems and software products.
