Obtaining Great Images with the NOMAD Pro 2™
The following is an overview of exposure techniques for the NOMAD Pro 2. For more detailed operation and safety information, please refer to your NOMAD Pro 2 Operator Manual.
|As an intraoral dental X-ray system, the NOMAD Pro 2 can be easily positioned. This high degree of flexibility easily makes possible exposures while the patient is reclined, lying completely on their back, or sitting upright. Ensure the patient is protected by using a radiation shielding drape.
Because the NOMAD™ is so easy to position, most practitioners find a positioning device is unnecessary. In most cases, the NOMAD collimator is held almost touching the patient’s face.
NOTE: NOMAD customers have reported success using a modified version of their existing Rinn-type positioning devices. The rod must be shortened so that the NOMAD backscatter shield can be flush with the positioning ring itself. The NOMAD backscatter shield should always be employed as far forward (toward the patient) as possible in order to function optimally.
Currently one company has created positioning devices exclusively for the NOMAD. This may be obtained from your dealer or by contacting ClikRay™, item # 001-200 (see http://www.clikray.com/clikray-for-aribex/).
NOTE: Aribex does not manufacture, sell, or formally endorse any positioning device from any manufacturer. This information is provided solely for the convenience of our customers.
NOTE: Both digital imaging sensors and film speeds can vary somewhat in their characteristics and could require different exposure settings to meet density preference.
