ACTEON IMAGING SUITE
ACTEON Imaging Suite is an advanced, easy to use application software suite providing a rich set of tools used to meet the
imaging requirements set by different types of dental facility – from small clinic to large hospital. ACTEON Imaging Suite is
intended to be used only in certified medical environments (hospital, outpatient clinic, dental clinic, department of radiology,
department of medical imaging, etc.).
It enable practitiones to acquire, process and permanently archive (in connection with patients) diagnostic images relating
to intraoral, maxillofacial and ear nose throat areas. Images can be originated by: intraoral digital sensors, dental panoramic
and cephalometric equipment, CBCT equipment, intraoral cameras and all the future ACTEON digital imaging devices.
It’s also used to send to the tomographic panoramic and cephalometric X-ray imaging systems the technical factors of examination to be carried out. And others parameters needed for each device.
The devices that have to work with ACTEON Imaging Suite are X-MIND trium, Whitefox from deGötzen and Cameras, Sopix²,
Sopix² ACE, PSPix, PSPix², SOPROCare camera and SOPROLife (with SDK provided by
ACTEON-SOPRO).
It will be possible to integrate third-party devices provided with SDK.
ACTEON Imaging Suite supports DICOM format, which makes the system flexible and ready to be connected to other compatible devices and applications.
2.1. CLINICAL APPLICATIONS
ACTEON Imaging Suite enable practitiones to take different kind of acquisition with alternative devices. This chapter explaines the type of acquisitions possible with deGötzen devices which are X-MIND trium and WhiteFox.
Its compact size and low radiation dose make WhiteFox the ideal solution for surgical diagnostics and planning in maxillofacial imaging.
Dentists and specialists can examine the complex anatomy of the patient using cutting edge visualisation techniques implemented in the AIS3Dapp software.
WhiteFox can be used to run various types of examinations, due to its versatile and automatic X-ray collimator, which reduces
the X-ray beam to the target volume. For every specific application, the operator can select the most suitable alternative
amongst the following 3D FOVs:
Cephalometric examination
Nominal FOV: cylindrical, 200 mm x 170 mm (diameter x height)
Resolution: low, medium, high and custom
Reconstruction grid (default): 667x667x567 voxel
Voxel size (default): 0.3 mm3
This examination is useful for reconstructions the entire maxillofacial anatomy: the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), upper cervical spine, anterior wall of the skull and splanchnocranium, upper and lower
airways, paranasal sinuses and the entire oral region.
Full arch examination
Nominal FOV: cylindrical, 150 mm x 130 mm (diameter x height)
Resolution: low, medium, high and custom
Reconstruction grid (default): 500x500x434 voxel
Voxel size (default): 0.3 mm3
The full dental arch examination shows the entire dental region, mandibular anatomy, lower paranasal
sinuses, TMJ and airways.
The WFI software uses the volumetric data to reconstruct a virtual dental panoramic view.
This digital panoramic projection is of higher quality than conventional ones, thanks to the absence of
geometric distortions and reduction of partial volume effects.

ENGLISH
Dental arch examination
Nominal FOV: cylindrical, 80 mm x 80 mm (diameter x height)
Resolution: low, medium, high and custom
Reconstruction grid (default): 400x400x400 voxel
Voxel size (default): 0.2 mm3
The dental arch examination allows viewing of the entire oral region, including the mental and mandibular foramen.
Extended dental arch
Nominal FOV: cubic, 120 mm x 120 mm x 80 mm (side x side x height)
Resolution: Medium, high
Reconstruction grid: 400 x 400 x 267 voxel
Voxel size (default): 0.3 mm3
The extended dental arch / BDE examination reconstructs the dental arch, jaw and lower part of the jaw
down to the palatine apophysis. An accurate HU calibration allows estimating the bone mineral density,

3D examinations have a wide range of clinical applications.
3D acquisition (CBCT) can be used in a wide range of medical investigations, some of which are listed below.
GENERIC DENTISTRY
- Mastication examination
- Orthodontic examination
- Visualisation of condyles and joints to evaluate the state of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ analysis);
- Periodontal examination
- Periodontal disease diagnosis
- Odontogenic lesions diagnosis
DENTAL IMPLANTS
- Surgical planning of dental implants
- Qualitative and quantitative analysis of the bone structure in the implant site, such as the assessment of the cortical bone
density and thickness
- Surgical follow up and osseointegration
OTOLARYNGOLOGY
- Paranasal sinus evaluation
- Upper and lower airway examination
- Auditory system examination
ORAL AND MAXILLOFACIAL SURGERY
- Facial bone structure analysis to diagnose infections, traumas or congenital deformities
- Localisation, identification and segmentation of important anatomical structures, such as inferior alveolar canal and maxillary sinuses, for maxillofacial surgery
HUMAN MORPHOLOGY
- Cephalometric analysis
- Cervical spine analysis
ACTEON Imaging Suite provides many advantages:
• 3D visualisation helps the dentist select the exact dental implant site, evaluating its osseointegration and the presence of
nerves or arteries
• Tomographic slices can be used in Image-Guided Implantology Systems to assist the dental surgeon during the pre and
intra-operatory phases
• Compared to traditional radiology, tomographic investigation allows for a clear discrimination between different tissues,
such as bones, teeth, nerves and soft tissues
• Tomographic slices can be viewed to show volumetric data, using various techniques: multiplanar and curves reconstruction, surface rendering, volume rendering, maximum intensity projection
• Improvement of patient-related workflow

LINK WITH PRACTICE
MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
Integration of AIS with Practice Management systems is made by lauching AIS by command line. This method allows
insertion of new patients info into the AIS database, updating data of existing patients and shows the clinical view of a patient
requested.
To launch AIS by command line, read document “PMSintegration_ForDevelopers.pdf” that describes all the ways to integrate
the AIS into a Practice Management System.
The same target is reached launching AISlink.exe that is installed in the same path of AIS.exe or better with LUSI.exe.
8.1. LUSI
8.1.1 LUSI PHILOSOPHY
LUSI is a tool capable of partially linking the management application of your dental office with the AIS.
LUSI is delivered with AIS, requiring only that you perform adjustments to make the most of this link.
8.1.2 LUSI ACTIVATION
To activate LUSI set Into AIS configurator the link type as “Type SI or LUSI” (see AISconfigurator pharagraph).
Then, you just need to confirm your choice by clicking «OK» to start up LUSI. Now, every time you reboot your computer, LUSI
will start up automatically and be ready to run.
There is no simple method of shutting down LUSI to avoid handling errors that would call for program searching to restart
it. However, if you want to mask LUSI temporarily (until you start up your computer again), simply click the LUSI title bar and
press the «ESC» key of your computer once.
8.1.3 LUSI PRESENTATION
Once it is running, LUSI displays the following icon:
To open your parameter settings, click on the icon while pressing the «Ctrll» key on your keyboard.
To execute the link, click normally on the button.
Click on this new icon to close Sopro Imaging and bring your management application to the forefront. The icon will recover
its initial position on your screen.
PLEASE NOTE
This icon will not open up the parameter settings.
Whaterver happens, the icon will stay on the forefront and you can move it anywhere on the screen. It also memorizes its
location and will always restarts from the place that you choose.

ENGLISH
8.1.4 LUSI PARAMETER SETTINGS
NOTE: Your management software must be open and you must have selected a patient.
As indicated in the previous chapter, you can open the parameter settings by clicking on the LUSI icon whilst pressing the
«Ctrl» key of your keyboard.
You will obtain the following screen:
This screen displays labels, inactive fields, targets to the right of each field and four check boxes.
Each of these fields represents the data that LUSI can process if it is available in your management application and if you want
to supply it over the AIS link.
The absolutely essential data are forename, surname and date of birth. All the other data can be left out.
The “Show reduced button” box allows the LUSI icon to be displayed in an icon whose size is reduced by approximately 30%.
This can be useful if your screen cannot support high enough resolution.
The check box marked “mask the control window” allows you to avoid the control phase (click to validate) when the link is
activated. We really advise you to leave this box unchecked so that you can check this data in any case, as it moves between
your management software and AIS.
The check box marked “Alternative mode” should be connected if it is to be used with Visiodent software.
The check box marked “Hide LUSI when the imaging software is launched” allows you to hide the LUSI icon when the imaging
software is open.
The Reset button enables you to reinitialize the link parameters at zero.
YOU WILL LOSE ALL THE INFORMATION PARAMETERS SET UP TO THIS POINT
PLEASE NOTE
You can choose the manual link too, in which case you will not need to perform the following manipulations. Using the
manual link, the option « Mask the control window”is not functional.
To set up the link parameters, click on the target located to the right of the «File» field whilst holding the mouse button down.
The configuration window disappears and provides you with access to the entire screen. Now drag the mouse over the field

61
ENGLISH
that contains the file number in your management software, then release the button.
Whilst this is happening activites may vary depending on your management software:
If the fields fill with all the data concerning your patient, the link parameter setup is done apart from the operating options.
If the “Number” field fills up with the patient file number, you will have to repeat the operation for each of the fields that you
want to supply as a link.
If the “Number” field stays empty, you will have to try again because you may have made a handling mistake. If nothing
changes, contact your dealer; we will then do our best to find a solution.
If everything happens correctly, you will see the data of your management software appear in the parameter settings window. The visible fields correspond either to data that do not exist in your management software for the selected patient, or
to fields for which you have not set the link parameters.
8.1.5 LUSI USE
NOTE: Your management software must be open and you must have selected a patient.
To use LUSI, just click on the icon. You will obtain the following screen:
PLEASE NOTE
If you have chosen the «Mask the control window” option, this window will not appear
You can then check the data that LUSI was able to extract from your management software. If you are on a manual link, you
can fill in the fields you think are necessary (the file number is compulsory).
Even for a link for which the parameters have been set, you can make changes to the transmitted data but always bear in
mind that these changes will not be entered into your management software.
Then click «OK» to start AIS with the patient’s data.
