QuickShot™ FAQ

Frequently Asked

What makes QuickShot QS-300 superior to a standard scanner?
1) Speed: The QS-300 is instantaneous! It uses a HD camera to provide a live high-resolution camera feed. A standard high-resolution backlit scanner can take several minutes to scan an image.
2) Image: Because the QS-300 uses a camera, you make image exposure and contrast adjustments BEFORE the image is captured. Standard scanners capture an image then you have to manipulate the image after it’s captured.
3) Software: Unlike scanner software, QuickShot Capture software is extremely easy to use! 3 Steps; Crop, Adjust, then either Preview, Print, or Save.
4) LIFETIME Warranty: No other scanner company has ever dreamed of offering a lifetime warranty.

What film does the QS-300 digitize?
All dental film! Pan, Ceph, TMJ, mounted intra-orals, and individual intra-orals (sizes 0-4).

What image types?  
Standard image formats. JPG (JPEG) and PNG. Both formats provide excellent image detail. JPEG’s are slightly smaller and best suited for being sent via email to insurance or for referral. PNG’s are slightly larger and provide slightly more detail.

Can the QS-300 interface with my current practice management software?  
Yes, if your software supports import of standard image JPG and PNG formats. Contact your software provider if you have questions. Here’s how QuickShot works with your software. First, create a folder on your desktop called QuickShot Images. From QuickShot Capture, save your QuickShot images to that folder. Then from your practice management software import from that same folder. 

Can QuickShot be used as a stand-alone system?Yes. Create a file folder on your desktop called QuickShot Images (or whatever folder name you like). When you save an image from QuickShot, you have the option to add the patient name, date of birth, exposure date, and image sequence number. It is then easy and fast to search the folder to find patient images.

Why are the digitized x-rays monochrome?
Standard X-Ray film is black and white. Color is not necessary so QuickShot is designed with a high-resolution monochrome camera. RGB (Red-Green-Blue) image data adds no value to a monochrome image. In fact, the extra data actually reduces the image detail and produces a larger file size.

Software updates?
Software updates to QuickShot Capture are available on our website at no charge.

How does the QS-300 connect to my computer?
Via a standard USB 2.0 connection. A 6′ cable is included.

What computer operating systems do I need to run QuickShot?
Microsoft Windows running 7, 8, or 10.
