Table of Contents


In the realm of modern dentistry, accurate and comprehensive diagnostics form the cornerstone of successful treatment planning and patient care. Advancements in panoramic imaging technology have paved the way for a new era in diagnostics, with Vatech Australasia at the forefront. This blog explores the revolutionary Insight Pan, an advanced imaging solution that represents the next evolutionary step in panoramic imaging. By capturing 41 multi-layered images, Insight Pan enables dental professionals to obtain unparalleled diagnostic information, uncover hidden details, and optimise treatment outcomes.

Insight Pan: Advancing Panoramic Imaging

Limitations of Conventional Panoramic Imaging. Conventional panoramic imaging has long been a valuable tool in Dentistry. However, it has its limitations, particularly in capturing all the intricate details when it is a 2D single layer of image, considering each patient’s dental arch may slightly differ. Conventional images occasionally miss important details that fall outside of a single focal layer.

Introduction to Insight Pan and its Unique Capabilities. Vatech Australasia’s Insight Pan is an advanced imaging technology that takes panoramic imaging to new heights. It provides 41 multi-layered images, ensuring that all vital details are captured within this depth-added panoramic image. Insight Pan overcomes the limitations of conventional imaging by providing a comprehensive multi-layered view of the patient’s oral structures.

Unveiling the Power of Insight Pan

Comprehensive Diagnostic Information. Insight enables dental professionals to obtain in-depth diagnostic information spanning from the anterior to the posterior regions on a digital panoramic image. This comprehensive view enhances their understanding of the patient’s oral health.

Insight Feature: Exploring the Region of Interest. One of the remarkable features of the Insight Pan is the ability to explore specific regions of interest. Dental professionals can access through the 41 layers of images of the tooth (buccal to lingual) and see interproximal caries, broken files, root fractures, hidden multi roots and canals, location of pulp and gutta-percha that may not be visible or overlapped in a conventional panoramic x-ray. This level of detail aids in accurate diagnosis and treatment planning, such as restorative treatments, root canal therapy, or extractions.

Enhancing Visualisation of Anatomical Structures. Insight Pan provides an enhanced visualisation of anatomical structures, including periodontal ligament space, mandibular canal location, and impacted teeth. This level of detail aids in precise diagnosis and treatment planning.

Insight Pan in Endodontics: Unlocking Hidden Details

Identifying Hidden Multi Roots and Canals. 41 layers Insight Pan enables dental professionals to identify hidden multi-roots and canals that may not be clearly visible in conventional panoramic images. This capability is especially crucial in cases where accurate diagnosis is essential for successful endodontic treatment.

Enhanced Detection of Complex Root Morphologies. With Insight Pan, dentists can identify and evaluate complex root morphologies, such as additional roots or accessory canals. This information helps in planning root canal treatments effectively.
Accurate Localisation of Pulp and Gutta-Percha. The precise location of the pulp chamber and the position of gutta-percha are paramount in endodontics. Insight Pan enables dental professionals to more accurately identify the location of the pulp and the filled canals, facilitating successful root canal therapy.

Optimising Endodontic Treatment Planning. Insight Pan’s detailed images assist in determining the number and morphology of canals, aiding in formulating an optimal treatment plan for endodontic procedures.

Detection of Broken Files or Root Fractures. Insight Pan’s advanced imaging capabilities allow dentists to detect broken files or root fractures that may go unnoticed in conventional panoramic images. Early identification of these issues enables timely intervention, preventing further complications and ensuring optimal patient care.

Insight Pan in Interproximal Caries

Overcoming Overlapping Teeth. With most 2D panoramic imaging, it is not unusual to see the teeth overlapping each other and not to mention the illusion artefacts that are common with any X-ray images. The shadow created by these overlaps can sometimes be misdiagnosed as dental caries and may call for unnecessary restorative treatment. With 41 multi-layer Insight Pan Technology, dentists can check the surface of each tooth without overlapping to clearly see each tooth in each different layer, making their diagnosis more accurate.

Insight Pan in Wisdom Teeth Extractions

Clear visualisation of the location of third molars. Assessing the proximity of the third molar to anatomical arrangements, for instance, the maxillary sinus or the mandibular canal is an important consideration before performing any extractions. Being able to access through 41 multi-layered panoramic X-rays from buccal to lingual will show a clearer view of the location of the third molar against the sinus or mandibular nerve canal. This helps clinicians to plan the treatment with precision.

Insight Pan in Periodontics

Depth-added imaging. In cases of periodontitis, it can be a challenge to assess the depth of the inflammation with just a single layer of image. Thanks to the Insight Pan, dentists can navigate through the 41 layers that show symptoms of periodontitis continuously over the multiple layers. This allows the dentist to assess the severity of the inflammation and how it has progressed through the lamina dura and differentiate it from a cyst, ensuring correct treatment planning.

Compliance with Australian Dental Standards and Regulations

Overview of Australian Dental Standards and Guidelines Australian dental practices adhere to specific standards and regulations to guarantee patient safety and care. These standards cover various aspects, including diagnostic imaging protocols.
