Take a Tour of the Panoura 18S
See what our Customers are Saying
I just purchased the Panoura 18S from ImageWorks and absolutely love it. The image quality is fantastic, and the image can actually be improved post capture with their software (Focal trough can be altered). I highly recommend it. Dr. Craig. Smith, Dallas, TX
I am constantly complimented by other dentists on the quality of our radiographs. Scott Nawy DDS, MS, Timonium, MD
A very elegant solution for a full mouth series with a simple extra oral scan. Dr. Salim Shafi, Phoenix, AZ
We are very happy with our Pan/Ceph unit. Theimages are excellent. We have had a bit of staff turnover since acquiring the machine but everyone seems to learn how to use it quickly. Dr. Alan R. Heller, DDS, MS, Baltimore, MD
Your customer service is simply outstanding!! Dr. Patricia Bobadilla, Miami, FL
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.
Exquisite Images – Even With Suboptimal Positioning
Panoura 18S features auto-correction for suboptimal patient positioning. Without this, an already suboptimal image (from a pan with a lower-quality sensor) can be further degraded if the patient is not positioned optimally. With the Panoura, the very high data-capture sensor acquires many “layers” of image data. This allows the powerful software to auto-correct for suboptimal patient positioning. It’s worth noting that all of this data is available after the image is taken – so the image can be further optimized if desired. In the end, this assures exquisite images with the Panoura every time while being less dependent on operator training or the ability of the patient to remain stationary.

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.
