Hello Dr. Ganguly,
I believe there are several machines in the market today that would be perfect for your dental school. Choosing one machine over another can be very difficult. My suggestions is to first have a budget and see what are the machines in your price range. Is this machine user friendly? Most pano machines will be operated by people with very little training and the easier it is to position patients better quality your panos will have. Third: Do you need a Pedo mode as well? How fast is the acquisition time? Does the operator needs to adjust Kv and MA for every patient? How long does it take for a machine to cool off so you can take a second scan. Sometimes, pano machines need 1 - 2 minutes before a second exposure can be taken. In a dental school setting this can be an issue.
I had a really good experience with the IC-5 unit from J.Morita. It is the fastest pano on the market (low radiation) and the operator does not need to adjust Kv or MA due to an auto-exposure mode. It is very easy to use and will work with any imaging software you might already have. The images are really good too.
Good luck on your quest for a new machine.

I am a third year resident in Oral & maxillofacial radiology at UIowa. We need to purchase a pantomographic unit (digital) for one of our clinics in our school. I am reviewing all the possibilities that are available. Any suggestions on the available units and your experience with them would be helpful.
