Dental CBCT X-era (With Acq PC)

The ImageWorks X-era 3D CBCT (with Acq PC) produces 3D dental imaging using a rotating gantry attached to an X-ray source and detector. The X-era system delivers state of the art high-quality imaging, it also increases productivity by decreasing the time spent on the image-capturing process. The data acquired from a CBCT machine is used to reconstruct a three-dimensional image of the patient’s anatomy, thus reducing the risk of retaking the x-ray. The ImageWorks X-era CBCT incorperates one of the smallest sized focal points in the industry, at 0.2 mm the x-era creates high quality images.

What’s so great about a Direct Conversion Sensor?
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.


Every scan captures over 50 different panoramic layers!
With most panoramic x-ray units, the arch of the patient needs to be exactly where the machine wants: along the path where the beam is focused. 

  • If positioning is not precise, a poor image can result.
  • If the patient shifts slightly during the time the operator walks out to initiate the scan, a poor image can result.
  • If the patient’s arch doesn’t match the trajectory of the scan, certain anatomy may not be in focus.  
  • The emergence profile of the anteriors could make it difficult to capture both mandibular and maxillary apices clearly in the panoramic scan.
