At the America's Dental meeting, the Tru Align imaging device won an award for best in class from the Pride Institute, which is a consulting firm doing product evaluations and teaches consulting to dentists.
Dr. Dale Miles, an oral and maxillofacial radiologist in Fountain Hills, Arizona, says that it was an honor to get the award. The Tru Align device is a rectangular columnation product that retrofits onto any dental x-ray. It narrows the x-ray beam from a large round cylinder down to a small rectangle. The device helps clean up the image quality, especially for film. The overall key, says Dr. Miles is that is makes it easy to have dentists and their staff lower the radiation dosage by using a small field of view with this device, thus decreasing the area of exposure by up to 60% for every single image they take.
