From: i-CAT User in Brazil

This is a relayed message from Dr. Emilson Barros de Oliveira Junior in Brazil:

Good night!

Excuse, I do not write the English well.

I saw some postagens its in blogger I-cat.
I taste future to enter i-cat blog!

We use the I-cat in Fortaleza/Ceará/Brazil. We are printing reports in film (no paper) in the Dryview8150 printer of the Kodak. However, I have problems with no Dicomprint on software, have that to print in pdf and later transforming into JPG or Dicom, the printer one only recognizes dicom.

Mr. knows somebody that prints dicomprint? Or as to export the obliquos cuts (trans axial)?

Thank you verry much.


Emilson Junior, CD

Please review under "Archives" the November 24, 2005 posting.

Most cone beam users are printing on paper using dye sublimation or ink jet printers. We only print on paper and have not had any requests to print on clear film.

The Codonics printer is capable of printing on clear "film" or paper. The initial cost of the Codonics printer probably prevents most people from using it.

Craig, have you heard any more information regarding the dental printer from Codonics?

We include i-CAT Vision with every scan which sets the i-CAT apart from every other cone beam unit on the market. The clinician's ability to view the DICOM data with i-CAT Vision greatly enhances the value of the scan and essentially makes the choice between printing on paper or clear a moot point.

Hi friends. In Brazil we have much disparity between the dentists. Dentists high-tech and old dentists.

We send all the exams with CD and viewer, however less than 50% has access the computer.

With the all the digital equipment: cefalometric, panoramic and periapical, become necessary to print in film.

Also, the dentists do not like to “search” in the Dicom images, they prefer the best cuts printed.

Perhaps the solution Dryview Kodak is expensive, but it was the best solution that we find.

To print I could mount template out of the I-cat system (Merge e-film or similar), but I do not export the obliquos cuts.
Somebody knows where is stored the oblique cuts (while it prepares template)? the cuts are in a folder temp?

thank you!

I do not fully understand your question, but I will try and anser the best I can.

You should be able to print from the ISI (Xoran) software templaes directly to your Kodak printer. If you cannot, then you could still print the PDF.

It is really this that I ask. The Dryview alone prints if software has dicomprint. Xoran does not have dicomprint, then I print in pdf and I transform of pdf for DICOM into autoimager software and print from E-film software.

Excuse my english (rsrsrsr)
