Creating a Custom Image Acquisition Sequence (1:43)

Dentrix Ascend includes default acquisition sequences for acquiring patient images. In some cases you may want to change the order you acquire patient images. For example, in the case of acquiring a full mouth series, you may want to capture images in the anterior areas first and then capture images in the posterior areas to improve patient comfort. In cases like this, you’ll need to customize the acquisition sequence. The sequence tells Dentrix Ascend how you intend to start, proceed, and end your image captures.

Additional Information:

  • It is important to follow the acquisition sequence when you are acquiring images. Dentrix Ascend will think that you are finished and automatically close the acquisition after you take the last numbered image in the sequence.
  • Note: Custom acquisition sequence settings are location-specific.
  • To remove a custom sequence, click the Acquisition sequence dropdown menu, select the name, and then click the trash can icon to delete the acquisition sequence. You cannot edit or delete the default sequence.
