Imageworks 2D Panoramic with Cephalometric Upgradeable to 3D Panoura 18S
Let ImageWorks carry you into the world of digital panoramic, cephalometric, and 3D imaging with its affordable, user-friendly and comprehensive Panoura 18S panoramic imaging system. ImageWorks’ Panoura 18S packs a lot of technology into a small footprint, utilizing a high-end CMOS sensor that can be transferred to an optional cephalometric arm. With a user-adjustable focal trough, errant images can be brought back into focus even after acquisition. With fully motorized movement, the Panoura 18S offers variable rotation speeds of six seconds for a quick panoramic scan or 16 seconds for a panoramic scan with maximum resolution. It is bundled into an aesthetically pleasing package that will enhance the appearance of any office and allows for in-office upgrades to either cephalometric or 3D capabilities with multiple 3D fields of view.
DIRECT CONVERSION SENSOR
Most Panoramic CMOS sensors use lower cost, more generally available materials that are less sensitive to x-ray. Therefore, these sensors must convert x-ray to light before converting to a digital signal. This can result in image blurriness because the extra conversion step can cause the radiation to “fan out” and inadvertently trigger surrounding pixels. The Panoura has a unique sensor design that converts x-ray directly to digital, which contributes to a much sharper image.
16 BIT SENSOR
How do we create the gorgeous images we’re so well-know for? It’s the 16 bit sensor. A 16 bit sensor has twice as many greyshades that can be presented in each pixel as a 15 bit sensor and four times as many as a 14 bit sensor. In the end, a 16 bit sensor provides fantastic texture and contrast.
FMX CLIPPINGS & BITEWINGS
Not only do we do create bitewings, but our FMX Clipping feature creates 18 intraoral-sized images clipped from the pan with one click. Instead of taking 18 individual images with an intraoral X-Ray, they can all be generated at once in 14 seconds.
EASY 3D UPGRADE
Our basic 2D panoramic unit is upgradeable to 3D, so there is peace of mind that the initial investment is protected if 3D capability is needed later on.
The Panoura’s small footprint makes it an incredibly practical solution for tight offices.
