Third-party Image Conversions

Image conversion is available for Dentrix Imaging Center for new Dentrix customers. This offering provides for the bulk, automated conversion of images and metadata from third-party imaging programs to Dentrix Imaging Center.

Process Overview and Requirements

Your previous imaging program must have been integrated (bridged) with your previous practice management system. The imaging program must not be running as a stand-alone program with patients being entered directly into it.

The data from your previous practice management system must have been converted to Dentrix.

Depending on the size of your previous image database, you must provide Henry Schein One with a copy of your imaging data in one of the following ways: For a database that is smaller in size, you upload your imaging data to a secure website directly from your office.

For a database that is larger in size, Henry Schein One sends you an encrypted hard drive. When you receive the hard drive, a member of the conversion team remotely logs onto a computer in your office network and copies the necessary imaging data to the hard drive. Then, you send the hard drive back to Henry Schein One.

Scheduling

To schedule an imaging conversion, first, contact the Henry Schein One sales team to place an order. After the order is processed, a member of the Henry Schein One conversion team contacts you to verify the imaging program version and the amount of imaging data. Then, you schedule your imaging conversion. Typically, you must schedule your imaging conversion at least three weeks in advance. A conversion team member collects the imaging data from you one week prior to the desired conversion date.

Imaging Brands and Versions

The following imaging programs and versions can be converted by the Henry Schein One conversion team.

Curve Dental Imaging (Curve Capture)

The current version of Curve Capture (Curve’s Imaging module) can be converted.

Curve Capture images are converted and placed in the appropriate Dentrix Imaging Center categories (intraoral X-rays, extraoral X-rays, intraoral color images, and extraoral color images).

Metadata, including tooth numbers, date of acquisition, and associated images in an exam, are all converted.

Notes:

Curve Capture duplicates template images and additionally saves them as individual single images. Dentrix Imaging Center converts Curve Capture template images and stores them in a Dentrix Imaging Center template. Dentrix Imaging Center does not duplicate the template images as individual images.

The various file formats used by Curve Capture to save images are all supported by the Dentrix Imaging Center converter.

Images are converted to Dentrix Imaging Center in their current state, as displayed in Curve Capture.

A single image that was acquired in KDIS on a given date is converted and stored as a single image in Dentrix Imaging Center.

Multiple images that were acquired in KDIS on a given date are converted and put into the best matching Dentrix Imaging Center template, such as 4BW or FMX, based on the tooth numbers defined for each image in KDIS.

MiPACS Dental Enterprise Imaging

Metadata, including tooth numbers/anatomic region, date of acquisition, and associated images in an exam, are all converted.

A single image that was acquired in MiPACS on a given date is converted and stored as a single image in Dentrix Imaging Center.

Multiple images that were taken in MiPACS on a given date (using a Template/Mount) are converted and either put into the best matching Dentrix Imaging Center template, such as 4BW, FMX, or Tiled if no template matches well.

Schick CDR DICOM 5.x

CDR DICOM version 5.4 is the latest version. (Dentsply-Sirona has declared the end of life for Schick CDR DICOM and will not be adding new versions.)

If your practice is running an older version of Schick CDR, it is possible to update to the 5.4 version prior to conversion if needed. (Note: You can download the Schick CDR 5.4 program at no cost.)
