Backscatter Protection Zone
Safe for handheld use The external backscatter shield and internal radiation shielding are specially designed to protect the operator from radiation exposure. In fact, the exposure from using NOMAD is orders of magnitude less than exposure allowed by the FDA. NOMAD radiation exposure is actually less than 1% of the allowed occupational doses. NOMAD is safe!
Whole Body Radiation Exposure 50 mSv 3.65 mSv
Occupational Allowance Yearly Background Exposure from Normal Activities
Yearly Exposure Using NOMAD with D-Speed Film
Yearly Exposure Using NOMAD with a Digital Sensor
Radiation exposure using NOMAD, in millisieverts (mSv), is shown for clinical scenario with one operator doing 7,500 x-rays per year.

Highest quality images and lowest patient dosage It has been clinically shown that NOMAD produces diagnostic-quality x-rays and will work equally well with both film and digital imaging media. NOMAD provides all the benefits of DC performance: highest quality images and lowest patient dosage. NOMADâ€™s high-frequency, 60kv DC x-ray generator provides constant radiation output. This improves image quality while reducing the dose to the patient relative to traditional half-wave (AC) generators.

Now, you can safely take quality images with a truly portable handheld x-ray— Anytime...Anyplace! This will change the way you practice dentistry in many positive ways. • Economical– One NOMAD can easily do the work of multiple conventional wall-mount x-ray systems in clinical use and it is unequalled for field work. • Truly Portable– Weighing only 8 lbs, the batterypowered NOMAD offers true portability with cordless operation and freedom from line voltage fluctuation. NOMAD can easily take more than 100 exposures on one battery charge. • Improves Quality and Workflow– Now take an x-ray anytime during a procedure for verification. You’ll have more diagnostic information when you need it. You’ll practice better dentistry! NOMAD gets the x-ray to the patient, not the patient to the x-ray— you don’t even leave the room! This improves work flow and saves time. • Easy to Use– The only input you need is the exposure time, entered through the user-friendly digital control panel. It’s easier for you and more comfortable for the patient. The ease of use and time savings is especially effective with children. •
“It’s so easy to use and it saves time!”
Works Wherever You Go– NOMAD is perfect for traveling humanitarian/mobile dentistry with minimal equipment and facilities.
Using NOMAD is quicker and more comfortable for the patient.
