 DEXshield is a unique dental X-ray position indicating device and a patented patient protective shield. When used in conjunction with the DEXIS® Platinum Sensor, this exciting new device not only reduces radiation to the patient, it also aids in proper positioning for image capture. DEXIS is the only company to provide both an intra-oral sensor, DEXIS Platinum, and a shielded ring, DEXshield, with the added benefit of dose reduction. In a laboratory setting, DEXshield plus the DEXIS Platinum sensor was determined to reduce absorbed dose by at least 30% as compared to the Universal Ring plus the DEXIS Platinum sensor. DEXshield was created to be easier to use than rectangular collimation, both of which were designed to reduce unnecessary dose to the patient. To overcome some of the limitations of rectangular collimation, DEXshield, when properly used with the DEXIS Platinum sensor, allows the operator to easily establish correct positioning and alignment. 

Appropriate positioning minimizes cone cuts which subsequently may reduce retakes that, in turn, potentially reduces even more unnecessary exposure.
