The Panoura 18S and its Direct Conversion Sensor: for Dental Professionals who want to maximize the information from their panoramic x-rays, and DESPISE retakes.
Most Panoramic CMOS sensors use lower-cost 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 18S utilizes a Direct Conversion (sometimes referred to as “Cadmium Telluride”) sensor that converts x-ray directly to digital, which contributes to a much sharper image.
