MacPractice, Inc has announced MacPractice DR (Digital Radiography), a new integrated ability for MacPractice DDS users. Among the first Mac OS X solutions MacPractice DR will work with are Visiodent's RSV Mac, Kodak's TrophyMac, and aMac. The company says is also working with several other developers to create new Mac OS X drivers for their dental x-ray solutions. With the new capability, intraoral and smile photos can be captured and stored. MacPractice DR is developed with Xcode. It utilizes Apple's Core Image technology and some of Apple's newest interface advancements, such as 'skimming' which allows a dentist to store several images in a stack. Running a mouse over the stack displays the images. MacPractice DR is priced at $1500 plus an annual fee for support and updates of $200.
