Planmeca PM 2002 CC Panoramic X-Ray *Refurbished*
The Planmeca PM 2002 CC is a software-controlled, stepper-motor operated dental panoramic x-ray machine.
It consists of an x-ray tubehead and a cassette assembly mounted on a support column.
Although the unit is designed for imaging patients who are standing, it easily accepts patients seated in wheelchairs.
The unit uses three light beams, a chin rest, a bite guide, and a head guide to position and stabilize the patient.
Unlike most other stand-up panoramic units, in which the patient faces a mirror, patients enter the PM 2002 CC from the side, facing the technician. This allows the technician to directly observe the patient, which facilitates correct positioning and contributes to distortion-free images.
The focal trough is adjustable both for arch size (small, medium, large) and arch shape (narrow, tapered, square).
All imaging parameters are easily adjusted using a touchpad mounted on the support column.
In TMJ mode, four TMJ exposures can be made on each panoramic film.
The small focal spot (0.5 mm by 0.5 mm) produces images with excellent resolution.
The unit uses a rigid film cassette.
The Autoprint keyboard allows the user to enter patient and film exposure information that is imprinted directly and permanently onto the upper edge of panoramic and TMJ films as they are exposed.
The PM 2002 CC requires a ceiling height of 86.5 inches and floorspace measuring 60 inches wide by 37.5 inches deep.
