  • This study compared the number and types of radiographic technique errors when photostimulable phosphor sensors were used with XCP[restricted trademark] (Standard), XCP-ORA[TM] (Modified), and XCP[registered trademark]/JADRAD[TM] (Standard/Shield) devices. A randomized block design was used to assign senior dental hygiene students (n=29) into groups with alternating sequences of systems used. A clinical survey regarding use of each system and a post study survey comparing the systems were administrated upon each full mouth series exposure and completion of all tested systems respectively. Images were assessed by a calibrated evaluator (ICC=0.87) for technique errors based on standard guidelines. Quantitative data were analyzed using ANOVA. The mean percent (sd) of any technique error for the Standard, Modified, and Standard/Shield system was 18.4(8.1), 17.5(7.2), and 15.4(6.6) respectively (p=0.43). No statistical difference in technique errors was found among the systems. Error types varied per device. Half of the subjects who used all three systems preferred the XCP-ORA[TM].
