Every scan captures over 50 different panoramic layers!
With most panoramic x-ray units, the arch of the patient needs to be exactly where the machine wants: along the path where the beam is focused.
- If positioning is not precise, a poor image can result.
- If the patient shifts slightly during the time the operator walks out to initiate the scan, a poor image can result.
- If the patient’s arch doesn’t match the trajectory of the scan, certain anatomy may not be in focus.
- The emergence profile of the anteriors could make it difficult to capture both mandibular and maxillary apices clearly in the panoramic scan.
The Panoura 18S also has Multi-Focal Plane capture capability. This means that every scan captures many layers both forward and backward. This creates a wide “envelope” where much more data is captured around where the patient is positioned.
