  1. What makes CDR DICOM unique?
    Unlike other digital radiography software, CDR DICOM uses no proprietary image file formats. All images acquired originate in the universal DICOM file format. This ensures image authenticity and universal compatibility.

  2. Is CDR DICOM compatible with my existing practice management software?
    CDR DICOM works with virtually every practice management software currently available. In fact, Schick’s policy is to cooperate with any legitimate software company (primary business being dental software) wishing to integrate our system into their software. A software developers kit is available for download from this website, free of charge.

  3. What does the acronym DICOM mean?
    DICOM Stands for "Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine". It is the universal standard developed by the medical industry to ensure all different types of acquisition devices could communicate and different practitioners would be able to view one another’s images. Currently, an ADA-sponsored taskforce is developing a standard for the dental industry. Schick is actively involved in this taskforce and is committed to meeting and exceeding this standard.
