Progeny Vantage Panoramic X-ray *Refurbished*
The panoramic X-ray provides a broad overview of the teeth, jaw, and oral structure of the entire mouth. The X-ray image supplies information about the teeth, upper and lower jawbone, sinuses, and other hard and soft tissues of the head and neck. The panoramic digital receptor is contained in a C-arm that moves around the patient’s head.
The Vantage System has many applications that include evaluation of third molars, evaluation of patients with past and present TMJ (temporomandibular joint) problems, patients who require full or partial removable dentures, dental implants, or braces, those who are at risk or suspected of having oral cancer or other tumors of the jaw, those who have impacted teeth, and those who have had any recent trauma to the face or teeth (i.e., can help identify a fractured jaw).

About the Vantage System
The Progeny Vantage Panoramic X-ray System consists of the panoramic X-ray device, the exposure button, and the Progeny client software which is installed on computer system(s) within the dental office network. These computer systems are not included.
About the Panoramic X-ray Device
The panoramic X-ray device consists of the telescoping column, the overhead assembly, the patient positioning table, and the touch control panel.
The telescoping column has two main parts: the fixed section and the moving or telescoping section. The fixed section contains the actuator to control up and down movement of the panoramic X-ray device. The telescoping section mounts the patient positioning features. Optical sensors in the telescoping section define the maximum and minimum extension of the column.
The overhead assembly consists of an overhead arm and C-arm. The overhead arm supports the C-arm, which rotates. The C-arm includes the tubehead and the removable sensor. The tubehead produces the X-ray beam, and the sensor is a digital image receptor.
Patient Positioning Table
The patient positioning table guides and supports the patient’s head during acquisition of panoramic X-ray images by means of the chin rest, bite guide, and positioning wands. The positioning control on the side of the patient positioning table has 4 buttons for the operator to control the up/down movement of the telescoping column, to apply and release the positioning wands, and to turn on positioning lights. The patient positioning table also contains a storage compartment.
Touch Control Panel
The touch control panel is mounted on the fixed column section under the patient positioning table. It is the main user interface for taking X-ray images with the Vantage System and is activated by touch.
The exposure button is used by the operator to take the X-ray. The basic configuration consists of an exposure button connected to the panoramic X-ray device by a coil cord.
Bitewing Capabilities & Guide
A bite guide helps the patient keep his or her jaw correctly positioned.
An easily removable chin rest fits into an opening on the patient positioning table.
A TMJ positioner for TMJ X-rays fits into the patient positioning table.
Emergency Stop Switch
The stop switch, mounted under the left side of the patient positioning table near the telescoping column, is for use by the patient. Depressing the button will immediately halt all motor movement. Touching the control panel surface will also abort any movement. The button can be released by turning the knob.
