Improving dental documentation using 4k dental loupe camera for a
leading Europe based dental imaging solutions provider

Dentistry is constantly evolving to best suit patient needs. Motivating and educating dental patients to care for their teeth are common challenges faced by dentists. A personal video showing the dental issue is a compelling way for educating patients about treatment history and the reason for high costs. And also presenting these videos for dental students could be the best way to explain complicated treatments and techniques. This case study talks about how we seamlessly integrated e-con Systems' camera into dental loupe of one of our clients.

About the client

Our client was a leading dental imaging solutions provider based in Europe. They offer solutions for patient education and dental students training.

Key Challenges and customer expectations

The typical intraoral sensors are hard, heavy, and have limited positioning. To overcome these challenges, our client needed a loupe mount camera. The camera had to align with the loupes and the LED headlight to work efficiently. Everything seen through the loupes had to be filmed in perfect focus and detail. LED lighting affected color accuracy of the image and made detection of deep marginal lines of teeth difficult. The customer needed a lightweight, low heat camera (as it was to be mounted on the head) that produced a high-quality video with long cable support.

Why we selected the See3CAM_CU135 camera?

We selected See3CAM_CU135, a 13MP fixed focus 4K USB camera board with iHDR support for this use case. This 4K board camera is based on a 1/3.2" AR1335 CMOS image sensor with advanced 1.1µm pixel BSI technology from ON Semiconductor®. It has a USB 3.0 interface for 4K video with an S-mount (M12) lens holder which allows dental professionals to choose and use the lens according to their requirements. This camera also has a high-performance Image Signal Processor (ISP) to perform Auto White Balance and Auto Exposure controls. The ISP and sensor settings are fine-tuned for compressed MJPEG. It is a Plug-and-Play camera (UVC compliant) for Windows, MAC, and Android.

How e-con Systems™ delivered a hassle-free solution

We customized the camera to have a modular design making it possible to mount any dental light or set of loupes. We miniaturized the board and customized the original product to meet specific requirements of loupe camera. We conducted thermal analysis and designed a compact aluminum heatsink to dissipate the energy and reduce the camera temperature. The heatsink also acted as a spacer to replace the individual spacers, which optimized production time.

Business benefits

This miniature 4K dental camera produced high resolution, high-quality video, and images from loupes and served the customer use case perfectly. It has been deployed in thousands in the market and has been delivering solid performance and functionalities with reliability.
