Any sensor with a TWAIN driver should be compatible, but we have not tested them all. The following sensors have been reported by users to work well with Open Dental.
Gendex - works, but Twain driver might be hard to get. Might need to pay a lot or get it from your local equipment dealer.
Woodpecker H1 and H2. Twain driver is available online.
Belmont Bel-Cypher panoramic
Air Techniques Scan X
iRay sensor: 6/5/2023 We have two complaints about the software crashing. We might purchase an iRay sensor to try to duplicate the problem.
If there isn't a setup page above for your sensor, here's the basic strategy. Install the TWAIN driver provided by the sensor manufacturer. Add the sensor in Imaging Devices. Make sure to check the box for "Show TWAIN UI".
If you attempted to take radiographs without this box checked, then you may need to check the box and restart Open Dental. Your TWAIN software might have a few different options. An important setting is the difference between a single capture and a series. Always set it to single capture. That way, control gets returned to Open Dental after each image. Then, Open Dental relaunches the TWAIN interface for the next single image. This gives you a chance to see each image in Open Dental and it also gives you a place to cancel the capture within the TWAIN software.
