My friend Dr. Dale Miles (who knows a whole lot more about digital imaging than I do) really likes this new pan.
From a single exposure, only S-Pan acquires 20 layers of images and slices them into 20,000 fragments. The best are selected and compiled to generate a single, exceptionally sharp panoramic image–automatically!
via Air Techniques.
The problem with dental panoramic radiographs has always been the curve and thickness of the mandible. Everybody is a bit different from everybody else, however the system has to focus the x-ray beam somewhere. In the past manufacturers have chosen averages and sometimes you get a clear diagnostics image and sometimes…not so much.
The S-Pan uses digital technology to take twenty different layers then combine them as needed to get the best image. In a sense the software customizes the image trough to each person.
