BURNABY, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/14/14 -- LED Imaging, a new division of LED Dental Ltd. ("LED Dental"), a wholly owned U.S. operating subsidiary of LED Medical Diagnostics Inc. ("LED Medical" or "the Company") (TSX VENTURE: LMD)(OTCQX: LEDIF)(FRANKFURT: LME), today introduced its new digital radiography intraoral sensor, the LED IS100. The sensor will be available for demo and sale at the California Dental Association - South ("CDA - South") Meeting being held Thursday, May 15, through Saturday, May 17, at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California. The LED IS100 intraoral sensor is the third product to be added to LED Imaging's portfolio since the launch of the division on April 2, 2014.
Designed with simplicity and versatility in mind, the LED IS100 intraoral sensor is a replacement for traditional dental film as it captures intraoral images of the teeth and supporting bone structures. The sensor boasts a number of product features that support practice needs, including:
-- High-definition image resolution: With greater than 20 line pairs per millimeter spatial resolution, the LED IS100 provides practitioners with the high-quality images they need to make accurate diagnoses. With 16,384 shades of gray (14 bits), the images are crisp, clear, bright and contrasted. -- Direct USB plug-in: The LED IS100 plugs directly into any computer via a direct USB connection, eliminating the need for an inline controller, dock or hub. The sensor can easily be moved from one operatory to the next, which is ideal for multi-chair practices. -- Durable construction: Hermetically sealed casing ensures the intraoral sensor is waterproof and can easily withstand the process of disinfecting by submersion. Additionally, the LED IS100 includes a CMOS chip, fiber optics, scintillator and a shock absorption system. -- Ergonomic design: LED Imaging's intraoral sensor is designed with both practitioners and patients in mind; the slim casing and rounded edges allow for faster, easier and more comfortable patient positioning. -- Diagnostic flexibility: The LED IS100 is available in two sizes to suit diagnostic needs, such as retroalveolar, posterior, bitewing and other necessary images. It can be used in endodontics, periodontics, prosthetic surgery and implants, as well as for cavity diagnosis. Plus, the sensor features an automatic wake-up system, so there are fewer steps required for the sensor to capture an image. -- Open-architecture workflow: The LED IS100 features an open-architecture design for streamlined integration with third-party software and imaging solutions. The intraoral sensor can be implemented into a practice seamlessly, further streamlining workflow.
"We're really excited about the newest addition to the LED Imaging family, the LED IS100 intraoral sensor," said Dr. Jeffrey Brooks, vice president of imaging for LED Imaging. "Digital radiography has been a game changer in dental practices because of the time and cost savings for all involved, so we wanted to give dental practitioners a product that would provide excellent quality day in and day out."
Also at the CDA - South Meeting, LED Imaging will have the RAYSCAN alpha - Expert digital imaging system and LED Imaging Software available for demo and sale. The RAYSCAN alpha - Expert, developed by Ray Co. Ltd., a subsidiary of Samsung, was launched on April 3, 2014, as LED Imaging's premier digital imaging product. The unit offers 3D cone beam computed tomography (CBCT), panoramic and cephalometric imaging capabilities to quickly capture high-quality, 16-bit DICOM images at a low radiation dose.
LED Imaging Software was first introduced at the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) Annual Session in late April 2014. The software captures, enhances and displays dental images from a variety of digital products, including digital imaging systems, such as digital radiography intraoral sensors, intraoral cameras and extraoral cameras. While the RAYSCAN alpha - Expert and LED IS100 work seamlessly with LED Imaging Software, the software is designed with true open-architecture, allowing integration with any practice management system and compatibility with imaging products from a variety of manufacturers. Additionally, the software acts as a front office tool by enabling users to duplicate films, create referral letters and treatment plans, and electronically transfer images to insurance companies and other doctors.
CDA - South Meeting attendees are encouraged to visit LED Imaging's booth number 2534, to demo the LED IS100, the RAYSCAN alpha - Expert and LED Imaging Software. To learn more about LED Imaging and the LED IS100, call 844.952.7327 or visit www.leddental.com/LED-IS100.

The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, provided an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud. This is critical background for IT and data professionals...

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud. He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...

Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments. However, the rate of the change, and the potential outcomes from today's digital transformation has the distinct potential to separate the industry into two camps: Organizations that see the change coming, embrace it, and successful leverage it; and...

Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning.
