Capturing a first-rate panoramic radiograph does not need to be difficult. To succeed, you can follow a few simple steps as well as communicate with your patient. After all, image acquisition is always a collaboration between the X-ray unit, user and patient.
It obviously also helps if the unit is easy to use or even forgiving when it comes to patient positioning. One of the advantages in taking panoramic exposures with a Planmeca ProMax® 3D unit is that its advanced SmartPan™ sensor captures nine panoramic layers in one go.
The nine layers are 2 mm apart – creating a large focal trough. To make things even easier, you have the option to use the panoramic autofocus tool for both Planmeca ProMax® 2D and 3D units.
To help you make panoramic acquisitions a routine, we have created a quick guide and a list of common panoramic positioning errors.
