The no.1 choice for dental X-ray QA

With the Piranha DENTAL, you can be sure of extremely accurate measurements that can be used for in-depth analysis. The meter measures kVp, Time, HVL, Total Filtration, Dose, Dose rate, and present Waveform.

A multifunction dental solution
The Piranha DENTAL is your number one choice when you want a multifunction dental X-ray service and maintenance solution for complete QA. It offers an affordable solution for Dental QA, providing the best practices for Intraoral, Panoramic, and CBCT.

A complete solution for service and quality control of even the latest Panoramic X-ray systems.

A complete QA solution
The Piranha DENTAL comes ready-to-use with everything you need.  It is really an all-in-one multifunction meter.  Connect to your computer wireless or via USB for a complete QA system!

Position Check feature
The unique feature of the Piranha DENTAL makes it possible to check the position of the detector before measuring. By using the Position Check function, you can verify that the detector area is fully irradiated. Possible field inhomogeneities are also neutralized.

Ocean Next™ software
Its compatibility with our Ocean Next™ software provides quick and repeatable QA work. The software can perform instant real-time analysis during your measurements. Use your tablet/laptop as both an interactive display during the measurements and as a powerful analysis tool when you are back at the office.

All your measurements, along with the result and the report, will be stored inside your tablet or laptop; there is no unnecessary, time-consuming data transfer.
