RFID Fills a Need for Dentists

“Many dentists are transitioning from traditional X-ray film images of patients’ teeth to reusable phosphor plates or digital photos, eliminating the need for X-ray film, chemicals and film-processing machines. The Carestream Dental division of Carestream Health provides those upgraded solutions for image capture and storage, but has also added another element to ensure that images are properly transmitted and stored: radio frequency identification. By employing RFID, the system enables dental employees to link a patient with a specific computer, so that as the X-ray images are transmitted via a Wi-Fi connection, or uploaded through a Carestream Dental device, they are received only by the appropriate computer—the one in the room in which the patient is located.”
