This device provides suitable conditions for imaging even of children by ability to adjust different positions, change the contrast, brightness, and gamma-ray. Sensors used in this device are CT-type sensors that have a major and direct effect on increasing the quality of dental therapies.
In addition to the increased quality of imaging, another advantage of this device is the reduced time needed for general imaging of the teeth, The imaging duration has reduced from 17 seconds to 10 seconds compared to the old system of Panorex. Meanwhile, the Panorex image can be seen on the monitor immediately after imaging, and a better image can be created in case of need. This feature has eliminated film waste.
Other specialized features of this device are as follows:
The image taken using the normal Panorex is usually used for seeing an overview of both jaws, the number of teeth and the roots in the jaw. However, in digital Panorex device, the resolution of a zoomed image is high enough to see the root length of all single teeth clearly, like periapical (single tooth) X-ray. That is periapical (single toot) X-ray of all teeth can be prepared through radiating X-ray only once.
Another special feature of this device is the accurate measurement of the decay of each tooth for restoration and root canal therapies.
Meanwhile, the length of root is also important in implant and orthodontic treatments and the use of this device enables online measurement and observation by the doctor.

Cephalometry is an imaging method used for measuring the skull, jaw, teeth and face. The image creates by this method is called a cephalogram. A cephyalogram is an image used by dentists and oral and maxillofacial surgeons as the treatment map.
The cephalogeram shows the relationhship between the soft tissue and bones and helps to diagnose developmental disorders before and during the treatment for assessing the treatment progress towards the desired result.
Cephallometer is a device that holds the head with a tool for performing X-ray imaging. This device was developed in 1931 in Germany and the USA. The main goal of cephalometry is to reach standard, more real sizes in X-ray film.
Cephalometry is performed in frontal and lateral variations with lateral being more common.
In lateral cephalometry. the head is held laterally between the tube and detector or cassette by a holder and the Frankfurt line or the parallel inferior Orbitomeatal line will be horizontal. Posterior teeth come together tight and the lips should be loose and free and not tight. In a standard cephlogram, the bottom of auxiliary sinuses should be parallel to the head should be actually lateral.
In frontal cephalometry, the head is placed in PI position, the face is toward the detector, and the back of the head is held towards the tube by holder. The Frankfurt line is parallel to the horizon and posterior teeth come together.
PERI APICAL :
It is a type of X-ray machine that can provide highly precise images of one or more limited teeth to show the full status of the tooth and its surrounding tissue. It is called periapical because it well illustrates the lesion around the apex or root tip. However, this technique is also used for examining the bony crest edges around the teeth as well as he interdental decays.
However, the bitwing procedure is used in the latter case (interdental decay).
In addition, occlusal images of each jaw can also be obtained using larger films.
