Objective: The aim of this study was to compare the accuracy of NewTom 9000 [cone beam computerized tomography (CBCT)], Accu-I-Tomo [limited CBTC (LCBCT)] and Digora Optime [storage phosphor plate
(SPP)] imaging systems in assessing the depths of defects with different shapes and sizes on the proximal surfaces of teeth.
One uses a photostimulable phosphor plate
(PSP) and the other uses a charge-coupled device (CCD) sensor or a complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS).
Currently, there are two different types of X-ray detectors for direct digital image acquisition: the charge-coupled device (CCD) and the X-ray storage phosphor plate
. Most commercially available digital systems are CCD systems, and the image is displayed almost immediately on a computer monitor after exposure of the sensor.
The Artist Series modules feature an LED array within a mixing chamber below a separated phosphor plate
. A separated phosphor technology is made possible by keeping the phosphor cold.
The x-rays passing through the patient are collected by a phosphor plate
and directly sent to a computer.
