Had a request come in from a Dr wanting to know if he could use a Kodak sensor with his current Dexis software. I says, sure can! Here’s a little tutorial. If you need additional help just call 800-821-8962 or email me firstname.lastname@example.org.
First thing you have to do is download and install the Kodak RVG TWAIN Driver from the Carestream website here.
Once the RVG TWAIN driver is installed go ahead and open up a patient in your Dexis software and then click on the Dexis logo in the top right corner of the window (Check out picture below)
Once the preferences window is open click on the “DEXray” tab. Under the DEXray tab select the drop down box next to “Scanner”. In the drop down box choose the RVG TWAIN option.
Once the RVG TWAIN option is chosen go ahead and plug in your Kodak sensor and then click on the scanner button (See pic below)
When you click on the scanner button it will open up the Kodak sensor ready count down window (see below). Once that countdown starts, go ahead and shoot it with some radiation!!
VOILA! You just took an xray with a Kodak sensor into the Dexis software. How cool is that!??! Wahooooooo!! :) See, I guess Dexis isn’t so bad after all.
Sure this isn’t the best option since it’s kind of a pain to have to hit the scanner button for each and every xray you want to take but hey if you’ve got Dexis software and sensors and just happen to have a Kodak sensor laying around collecting dust it just might be worth the small inconvenience!
