In version 3.6, MacPractice DR sports a new interface and uses an
enhanced device driver developed by MacPractice for SuniRay digital
sensors, which deliver exceptionally high image quality with maximum
diagnostic capabilities. SuniRay’s ergonomic design and rounded
corners ensure easy positioning and optimal patient comfort. The
unique design of its reinforced cable attachment and hardened outer
casing makes SuniRay incredibly durable and reliable. According to
MacPractice DR users, the quality of digital x-rays acquired by from
SuniRay CMOS sensors on the Mac are at least as good as those
acquired on the PC, if not better.

MacPractice DR directly interfaces or bridges to digital panorama and
cephalometric equipment. New bridging technology in MacPractice 3.6
works with PC applications in a virtual machine and also directly
with a PC.

solution for dentists who prefer to use a Mac, and MacPractice is
proud to be the company to deliver it,” states Mark Hollis,
