The light bulb went off for co-founder Daniel Uzbelger Feldman when he was performing a challenging dental procedure to retrieve/bypass a separated instrument fragment left on a patient’s molar tooth during a root canal. Dr. Uzbelger Feldman still remembers his frustration and more importantly, the patient’s suffering, after three unsuccessful attempts of more than one hour each to retrieve the fragment. Since necessity is the mother of invention, he tried to find an alternative way to visualize these procedures during procedures instead of before and after due to the limitations of existing x-ray imaging technologies.
He researched and discovered live imaging technologies were limited to the medical field. After comprehensive research, trial and error and by incorporating technologies used in ultra high definition digital cameras, it was feasible to achieve a higher image resolution, frame rates and lower radiation dose. These findings formed the basis of Real Time Imaging Technologies that now will be commercialized for dental and medical imaging use for enhanced patient care as well as for large format wave-front sensing advanced adaptive optics applications.
US Patent Pending No. 20160113483
US Patent No. 10,849,586
US Patent No. 8,430,563
US Patent No.: 6,543,936
Comprises the next generation of high quantum efficiency microlens-based and back illuminated flat panel detectors, large format adaptive optics wave-front sensing, dental imaging sensors and low dose x-ray sources resulting in significant dose reduction, higher resolution and dynamic/live visualization
Dental Cinematic Imaging System™
DCiS intends to simplify dental procedures by making them easier, safer and more efficient to perform through an innovative dynamic real-time imaging technology via the miniaturization of the medical fluoroscope for dental use
View Master System™
VMS is intended to provide high quality resolution at significantly lower radiation dose than current state of the art. The VMS™ viewfinder will allow aiming prior to taking an x-ray, like a cell phone/digital camera, thereby preventing mistakes and reducing patient’s overexposure caused by repeating radiographs

Daniel Uzbelger Feldman:
CEO & Co-Founder
Daniel has 25 years of experience in dentistry; as a clinician, entrepreneur and in Academia in two different countries. He is the inventor of the first-ever microlens / back-illuminated CMOS-based low-dose digital video imaging device for dentistry / low-dose ultra high definition flat panel detector / large format adaptive optics wave-front sensor and is the author of a seminal work on the comparison of existing dental imaging technologies to medical fluoroscopes. Dr. Uzbelger has put together device development, testing and FDA clearance proposals as well as strategic partnership opportunities and the RTI Tech management team. In 2014, he was granted with the Medical Device & Diagnostic Industry Dare-to-Dream Medtech Design Challenge Reader's Choice Award. In 2013, he was the recipient of the William H. Rollins Award granted by the American Academy of Oral & Maxillofacial Radiology. In addition, his team has won 3 consecutive awards at Temple University business plan competition series including the first prize in science and technology in the business plan competition.
