Radiovisiography (RVG), oftenly called also digital radiology is a modern system of imaging intraoral pictures. It's commonly used in dentistry. The radiation dosage is extremely lesser than the larger X-ray generator machines. The results are faster and better with no loss in image quality. This digital imaging system's using a small intraoral sensor instead of radiographic film, an intensifying screen, and a charge-coupled device. A receiver is placed in the mouth, routing signals to a computer which images the signals on a screen or in print. With minimal radiation exposure, it's delivering the highest image resolution with numerous possibilities to process the images.
RVG vs X-ray
The main difference between the classical technique and a digital photograph is the ability to edit digital photos after the exposure. Courtesy classic once exposed cannot be corrected. The digital image can improve, enlarge, get negative, take measurements, etc. This allows you to adjust images by a doctor, which greatly facilitates image interpretation and diagnosis, the patient is able to immediately obtain images with a digital or print.
RVG in Schill Dental Clinic
In Schill Dental Clinic patients are lying in the dentist's chair while making an RVG scan. The resulting image is done after a few seconds, therefore, it saves time not only for the dentist but also for the patient.
The RVG system can be used effectively for many reasons: to find hidden dental structures, malignant or benign masses, bone loss, and cavities. ... Dental restorations (fillings, crowns) may appear lighter or darker, depending on the density of the material. In our clinic, we commonly use it during endodontics treatment. The intervention is scanned by RVG and transmitted to the screen. The dentist can see and control also the smallest details, which increases the quality of work.
