Panorex is a specialized imaging machine used for dental X-rays. A panorex is able to record digital images of the whole of the head including bones, teeth and sinuses. The patient sits with her chin resting on a small ledge and the machine is able to go around the head and take accurate images.
The Panorex is able to indicate several abnormalities over a conventional x-ray. The 360 degree turn is useful in taking informative and detailed images that indicate structures, infections and asymmetries requiring medical intervention.
Naturally, advanced imaging leads to advanced medical care.
