DEXIS Delivers Enhanced CariVu Software
With the release of CariVu™ software 2.0, Team DEXIS™ answers the requests of clinicians who benefit by using CariVu on a daily basis
Hatfield, PA (October 19, 2016) DEXIS, LLC, a brand of the KaVo Kerr Group, is pleased to announce its most recent software update for CariVu™, the compact, portable caries detection device that uses unique, patented trans- illumination technology to easily detect a range of carious lesions (occlusal, interproximal, secondary/recurrent) and cracks. DEXIS’ reputation for listening and responding to the needs of its owner base has once again resulted in product improvement. CariVu owners have requested new features, and the DEXIS team has delivered with this latest software module.
This latest update incorporates noteworthy enhancements that build even more value into this ground-breaking device.
Fresh User Experience — The software interface has been fully redesigned with a sleek modern look and further intuitive, streamlined functionality.
Quick Capture — It takes only a one-second squeeze of the ring to freeze and save CariVu images into the patient record.
Same-Tooth Comparison Aid — For easier diagnostic comparison and monitoring changes over time, the software auto-draws an outline of a prior image of the same tooth which aids in acquiring new images that are the same size and orientation.
On-screen Acquisition Guidance — On-screen indicator provides guidance on whether the lens should be closer to the tooth or farther away to achieve the clearest image results in the shortest time.
5-Second Video Capture — When exploring a lesion by navigating the tip of the device around the tooth, a short video clip can be captured, providing more complete visual diagnostic data on the tooth.
Incorporated easily into current workflow, CariVu serves as a valuable adjunct tool for the identification of tooth decay when used with clinical and radiographic examinations. The information obtained from CariVu can be stored in DEXIS software with other types of patient images, and CariVu images are captured without any ionizing radiation.
In addition to its impressive 99 percent accuracy rate*, CariVu already offered many features to maximize efficiency. Now, clinicians can use a foot pedal to freeze and save CariVu images to promote steadier hands and reduce handpiece movement. An orientation feature, “mesial” and “buccal” tagging, can be added to both captured and saved images. With intra-oral radiograph mode, the user can associate the direction of the live video with the flow of the patient’s arch as well as the corresponding X-ray.
“As a result of this latest software update, CariVu continues to evolve,” says Marshall Martin, Senior Product Manager for DEXIS. “Our latest software update reflects the types of technology that clinicians are asking for — highly diagnostic imaging for caries detection, an easily integrated workflow, an impressive degree of accuracy, and no ionizing radiation. We will continue hearing and acting upon our owners’ voices to make this already excellent caries detection device even better.”
