Dental Imaging Plate Systems and Sensors KaVo Scan eXam

Scan eXam is a state-of-the-art intraoral imaging plate system for dental radiography. The system is well-suited for all dental offices and intraoral imaging requirements. Scan eXam can be enabled through a network and is thus especially well-suited for use in large dental offices. The KaVo Scan eXam combines intuitive operation and all advantages of digital radiography for smooth and expeditious workflows in your dental office. Another advantage is if you are familiar with the workflows involving film, you can keep using your familiar working routine.


Finished image ready in just 5 seconds

Scan eXam sets the standard in imaging speed. The entire process from reading to erasing is so quick that imaging plates can be unbagged and fed continuously without waiting between images.


Smooth workflow

1. Image preview
The state-of-the-art display shows a preview of each image, allowing you to instantly verify the correct patient positioning. In a network environment the display also indicates the receiving workstation ID.

2. Plates ready for re-use instantly
Scan eXam automatically erases imaging plates after image readout. Imaging plates are ready for immediate re-use.

3. Minimum unit handling
The patented hygiene concept of the Scan eXam keeps you focused on your patient and ensures complete hygiene. The system automatically prepares itself for capturing an image when you approach it with the imaging plate. No buttons need to be touched.

4. Guided Plate Feed (GPF)-function
The system actively assists with correct insertion of the imaging plates by the user and indicates if the user tries to insert them incorrectly. There is no risk of lost or low-quality images due to incorrect feeding of imaging plates.

Patented iDOT system

The unique iDOT marking system avoids retakes. The iDOT marking allows you to identify and trace back which plate was used to capture a specific image. Damaged plates can be easily identified and replaced.

Imaging plates provide you with superior image quality and wide dynamic range of acquisition options. There are no accidental under or over exposures. Images are automatically processed, to bring forth the required diagnostic information.

Scan eXam provides excellent, consistent clinical results. The system is compatible with both AC and DC imaging units.

Size 0 to 3

Scan eXam is already supplied with intraoral imaging plate sizes from size 0 to size 3. All types of patients and anatomies can be successfully handled with the system. Size 0 plates are particularly convenient with children and size 3 plates provide a longer view in bitewing imaging.

  • Thin, flexible imaging plates
  • 100% active area
  • No cables
  • Plates compatible with film holders

Scratch-resistant imaging plates

Scan eXam utilises the latest know-how in imaging plate technology. The imaging plates are very scratch resistant and provide high quality diagnostic results time after time.

 A cost efficient system

The system communicates via the local area network and is not restricted to one dedicated PC as USB-connected systems are. With the Scan eXam network feature up to eight workstations can share one Scan eXam over the computer network. This offers a very cost effective imaging solution for practices with multiple operatories.

Flexible placement at your office

Scan eXam is very compact. In addition to the desktop, it can be placed into a cabinet or under the desktop or even mounted on the wall.

The KaVo advantage

Like all KaVo products, the Scan eXam has been designed with great attention to detail. The system will provide you with years of high quality diagnostic results.
