    It's for an application that allows dentists and other doctors to do video examinations on their patients.

    EDIT: I'm probably going to use the blue one.

    Blue looks good. Is that an actual x-ray, or just a representation? IMHO, it looks just a touch blobby/vague.

    It's an actual xray. I'll probably get a clearer one though.

    Who you aiming it mostly at Dentists? Doctors? or other allied health professionals?

    If mostly dentists - then blue one definitely!
    If you are aiming for the wider health and medical market - I'd go for a more generic... Doctors and other health professionals probablyl won't jump at a Tooth.

    Just my thoughts anyway - as I'm in the wider allied health industry.

    Blue, I like the graphic. As for the clarity, I don't think it necassarily needs to be perfectly discernible at first look, but that's just my opinion - I like it as it is

    Definitely the blue one. I like it with a little color in it.

    Blue, absolutely, although I agree that it's pretty dentist-centric.

    Blue. But put a better looking X-Ray than that in.

    Without a doubt blue.
    If it's for doctors as-well, consider a more generic icon. Perhaps you will want to supply two icons, one for docs and one for dentists. If you have an installer see if you can set the applications icon there (I'm sure many people won't like this idea).

    Perhaps you'll want to keep the grayscale icon for update packages?

    Actually, I'm kicking myself for not thinking of that earlier - good one!

    Blue is good - but have you tried adding a little more perspective to the image. Don't know if that would make it any better.....

    I pick blue too. It looks better. Also I think the x-ray looks fine. You don't need to change it.
