Key Guide:

To use the Integration Chart, first locate the Software in the Software Name Column. 1, Next you will have any special notes such as limited functionality or anything that has been recorded which is important to note. Each column after this represents the corresponding key below and their meaning.

1. Apteryx/DG Bridge: This section indicates what functionality Datagrabber or Apteryx Program such as XrayVision is capable of obtaining from the corresponding program to it self. Typically if using Datagrabber to passing information to Vatech programs all modes in this section with the exception of limited Sniffer will work and bridge patient information in some manner to Vatech Software. Vatech Software is fully compatible with Apteryx program, the limitation is what Apteryx is able to obtain and pass alone.

Bridge= Built in Bridge or Button from Calling Application to Apteryx/XVvision or other rebranded version IMS (No Datagrabber Support).

Full Integration= Full bridge functionality support via Datagrabber (To 3rd party such as Vatech Software) or SDK (To XrayVision/Rebranded)

Datagrabber= DataDrill functionality only to 3rd party software via Datagrabber. This indicates all required fields are obtainable via Datagrabber to pass to Vatech Software.

Sniffer= Sniffer only - indicates limited ability to pull data, typically does not pull all required data, manual imput of missing data required once charting is passed.

Note: Only EzDent-i supports the use of sniffer, Easydent4 does NOT support the use of Sniffer. It can only be used once the chart is manually entered to pull up the chart afterwards.

NS=  No support


2. Easydent4/EzDent-i - This column represents the ability for the calling appication to bridge directly passing patient information to add or open charting in Vatech Software.

B= Built in Bridge or Button from Calling Application directly into Easydent4 or EzDent-i.

NS=  No support


3. NCSW (SDK) Capture Program / HD Sensor - This column represents the ability of the calling application listed to directly call to the capture program either by SDK - passing patient information and saving directly or using Twain.

Note: Not all programs capable of twaining are listed, those listed are simply one's that have been confirmed to work. Most twain compliant programs  will support twain*.

T= Twain 2D images directly into the calling application. No patient information is shared.

B= Bridge directly from calling application, or SDK to Capture Software. .

NS= No support

Note: Please contact those software's that are not listed to confirm they support twain.
