Caring For Your OPG/CBCT During Long Periods of Inactivity

Your OPG, Ceph or CBCT Machine does not like being sat idol.

At 360 Visualise we get a lot of errors after a machine has been idle for a while. Usually after the Christmas holidays or long summer breaks. No doubt this enforced break will be no different.

To help keep your machine in tip top condition please season the machine every 10-14 days.

This will help keep the generator gassed and prevent any long term damage.

To do this go into your test patient and select the Parameters setting and take a series of X-rays at these settings.
