Product Description

Gendex Orthoralix 8500 DDE

Digital Panoramic Imaging System

Building on the award-winning design of its previous 8500 digital panoramic imaging system model, Gendex has launched its newly designed Orthoralix 8500 DDE with focal detection, TMJ imaging capabilities, and a sleek new design.

Based on the premise that better diagnostics in panoramic imaging begin with optimal recognition of critical aspects of patient anatomy, the Orthoralix 8500 DDE couples state-of-the-art CCD sensor technology with the latest software processing algorithms. Together, they optimize image capture and produce quality radiographs that more accurately represent critical anatomies.


Focal detection is made possible with KINEMAGIC articulated motion technology, a morphology-tracing feature that precisely follows the patient's focal trough. Once the patient is accurately positioned, multimotorized arm rotation allows the x-ray generator to maneuver in a sophisticated path, ensuring constant focus across the image and producing a more precise reproduction of the entire dentomaxillofacial region.

Magnification is kept constant throughout exposure, producing highly diagnostic images with minimal distortion. Image quality is further enhanced with the industry's smallest focal spot size of 0.4 mm, which creates sharp detail in the panoramic radiograph.

Four projections come standard with Orthoralix 8500 DDE: adult (standard) panoramic, the child panoramic, frontal TMJ, and lateral TMJ. The addition of TMJ imaging to the panoramic projection capabilities allows clinicians to obtain images that might otherwise require outside referrals, enhancing efficiency and productivity while potentially helping to grow the practice. An innovative control panel enables simple set-up of both panoramic and TMJ projections.


The Orthoralix 8500 DDE's triple laser beam positioning guides enhance both ease of use and imaging consistency. User-friendly lever-actuated temple supports and improved bite guides help to ensure and improve patient stability for more consistent imaging and enhanced patient comfort.

Designed to be both easy to use and easy to integrate, the Orthoralix 8500 DDE features a small footprint and motorized telescopic column, both of which facilitate placement of the system where it's needed, even when space is at a premium. Built-in LAN connectivity enables out-of-the-box hook up to the practice's network, eliminating the need to install a pan-dedicated network card. This provides instant access to images from any networked PC in the practice, saving time while increasing efficiency and productivity.


In recent years, the 8500 model won the prestigious GOOD DESIGN award for its contemporary style, and it was the only panoramic to gain the highly regarded Medical Design Excellence Award for medical and industrial attributes. Building on that success, the Orthoralix 8500 DDE comes with next generation technology, even more pleasing esthetics, while retaining its small foot print.' Laura Bruck
