Panoura 18S can take a quick pan of 6 seconds, up to a 16 second pan for maximum resolution.

ImageWorks will introduce the 3D upgrade component for a multiple field of view imaging in the coming future.

ImageWorks Sales vice president Marc Thacher said the Panoura 18S includes a lot of technology into a small footprint, utilising 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 after acquisition,” Thacher said.

ImageWorks will begin distributing the Panoura 18S, a digital 3-in-1 panoramic x-ray system, on 1 September 2011.

The company will have exclusive distribution rights for the Panoura X-ray system in the US, Canada and Mexico, and will also distribute the product on a non-exclusive basis across Latin and South America.
