INSTRUMENTARIUM DENTAL describes the ORTHOPANTOMOGRAPH OP30 as combining distinctive design and reliable quality with professional tools for standard panoramic imaging needs. According to the manufacturer, the system is easy to use and integrate into any dental practice or small imaging center.

Seven current users of the OP30 participated in this Dental Product Shopper evaluation, rating and commenting on features such as overall ease of use, image quality, and ease of patient positioning and patient comfort.

A dentist from Riverside, IA, who has been in practice for 10 years, described the OP30 as, “very easy to use.” She went on to say that she would definitely recommend the system to her colleagues and she also gave it an overall satisfaction rating of very good.

Image Quality

INSTRUMENTARIUM DENTAL describes OP30 as providing exceptional image quality. This quality is based on several elements, including stable 5-point patient positioning, optimal imaging geometry, an adjustable anterior layer position with 3 positioning lights, highfrequency tube head design, high-resolution CCD imaging sensor, V-shaped collimation to optimize image quality, and versatile software tools to enhance diagnostic capabilities.

When the evaluators were asked to rate image quality and diagnostic capability, 3 rated the OP30 as excellent, 3 rated it as very good, and 1 rated it as good. Several evaluators noted image quality as one of their favorite features of the OP30. An evaluator from Wilmington, OH, who has been in practice for 38 years, said, “The image quality is phenomenal.” He continued, “Plus there are so many tools that you can use to further enhance the image quality.”

Ease of Patient Positioning

According to the manufacturer, the 5-point patient positioning system of the OP30 holds the patient still while taking images, reducing movement artifacts. In addition, 3 laser positioning lights ensure positioning accuracy, and the sharp layer can be easily adjusted for each patient.

The evaluators were asked to rate both ease of patient positioning and patient comfort. For both evaluation criteria, 4 evaluators rated the OP30 as excellent and 3 rated it as very good.
