Recommended Operatory Positioning

  • Scanner Placement: It’s advised to position the scanner on the opposite side of the patient relative to where you will be seated. This arrangement allows for a clear view of the laptop screen during scanning.
  • Accessibility Considerations: Ensure that the scanner, keyboard, and mouse are within easy reach throughout the procedure.
  • Power Requirements: The scanner and laptop should remain plugged into wall outlets while scanning.
