Updated Dolphin 3D

Scroll down to Dolphin Subsection on this Blog for more infomation to get the newest update for Dolphin 3D...

"AWESOME!" We just received the new Dolphin 3D update. The Dolphin 3D cephalometric profile was already good and now Dolphin has made it even better! It is truly a stunning cephalometric image. Commments on the new panoramic image? Being able to vary the focal trough for the anteriors now allows us to generate a truly pulchritudinous panoramic image worthy of the scrutiny of orthodontists. We now possess the tools (Dolphin 3D and i-CAT) to eliminate the traditional panoramic film & cephalometric profile by utilizing the i-CAT scan. Your orthodontists will have the options of obtaining the TMJ views (lateral & coronal), SMV, cross sectional images. PA skull & more.

Ask your orthodontists if they would like to place Temporary Anchorage Devices (TADs) or mini-implants. We are all familiar with the resistance of children regarding the use of headgear, yet have you considered the adult patient who would be required to wear headgear too? TADs will enable your orthodontist to capture the adult market that refused to wear headgear=more patients. Some orthodontists are not comfortable placing TADs, let them know the scan can be given to the oral surgeon who will place the TADs for them. Explain in detail how you are now able to generate many different images from just one scan and how the orthodontist can see the cross sectional images in the exact area of the TAD site.

Pulchritudinous \Pul chri tu di nous (adj.) means great physical beautiful and appeal. I had to find the perfect word to describe those Dolphin 3D images from my i-CAT.

I too am impressed with the new Dolphin 3D. I did my daughters final ortho survey with an icat scan and digital photos only. Haven't sat down for the consult yet.
Problem: I cannot get the ceph or pano to print out of Dolphin at a 1:1 or 10% mag (ceph). It also seems cumbersome going from 3D to Dolphin. Other than that, the images are simply pulchritudinous.

Printers: I just bought a new Kodak Professional 1400 Digital Photo Printer (dye sub - $500). Prints are $2 each. I haven't used it yet as I am waiting for rollers/media (could be a problem?) I have 10 days to return it so I will let you know what I think.

Printers: If you are using (or used) the Olympus P-400 or P-440 dye sublimation printer, those can now be totally refurbished at the factory for $133.15 (including shipping back to you). It takes about one week from the time they receive the broken printer.

I hope the printing 1:1 issue has been fixed with you guys. It seemed to be more of a setup issue than anything. And it looks like you should have Dolphin Imaging Version 10 to have this working properly. So, please email if you are on a current support contract and need Version 10.

We've verified and there's absolutely nothing wrong with image sizing in Dolphin 3D. Please let us know if there still are issues.

I've left a blog on the latest Dolphin 3D (v1.9) in the Dolphin 3D sub-section. Check it out...
