Holsworthy NHS Dental Care is the first dental practice in Britain to have a digital X-ray scanner using imaging technology developed at the European particle physics laboratory at Cern in Switzerland. This equipment which will take 300 individual images a second in a single scan, uses a cadmium telluride sensor to convert all this detailed information into a complete diagnostic picture which is up to 300 per cent clearer than conventional systems.
