ProMax 2D 

Open patient positioning

A relaxed patient means a smooth imaging workflow and the best possible image quality.


  • Position patients effortlessly thanks to open-face architecture

  • Correct patient positioning either with Autofocus or manually

  • Make fine adjustments using positioning lasers and joystick

  • Work with an unrestricted view of your patient

  • Avoid claustrophobic feelings in patients

  • Accommodate wheelchairs easily with side-entry access

Easy upgrade from 2D to 3D

Planmeca ProMax® – future proof and a great investment

Planmeca ProMax® 2D is designed with upgradeability in mind. The unit’s modular structure allows easy conversion to different imaging modalities, while the software-driven SCARA is extremely flexible, allowing you to benefit from new imaging projections.

Whether you’re upgrading your 2D unit to 3D, or adding a cephalometric arm, Planmeca has the right solution for you. Individual options can be installed before delivery or added later, making Planmeca ProMax the most versatile all-in-one X-ray unit available.

All the imaging programs you need

Our Planmeca ProMax® X-ray unit offers the widest variety of imaging programs available – easily meeting all your clinical needs. You can also select the correct exposure formats to minimise the radiation dose for all types of patients and diagnostic purposes.

Panoramic imaging

In addition to the Standard panoramic program, the following programs are offered:

Interproximal panoramic program: generates an image, where interproximal teeth contacts are open. Primarily used for caries detection.

Orthogonal panoramic program: produces an image with clearly visible alveolar crest for improved diagnostics. Ideal for periodontal imaging and implant planning.

Extraoral bitewings

The Bitewing program uses improved interproximal angulation geometry. The result is a bitewing image pair with low patient dose and excellent diagnostic quality.

Sinus imaging

The Sinus programs provide a clear view of the maxillary sinuses.

Horizontal and vertical segmenting for panoramic program

With the Horizontal and vertical segmenting program, exposure can be strictly limited to the diagnostic region of interest. Patient dosage is reduced by up to 90% compared to full panoramic exposure.

TMJ imaging

The TMJ imaging programs produce lateral or posteroanterior views of open or closed temporomandibular joints. The imaging angle and position can be adjusted to correspond to the anatomy of each individual patient.
The Lateral-PA TMJ program captures lateral and PA views on the same radiograph. The multi-angle TMJ programs produce radiographs with images from three different angles, from either the lateral or PA view.

Software for all images

World leading imaging software

Planmeca Romexis® is the software of choice for viewing and processing 3D and 2D images from Planmeca X-ray units.

Powerful enhancement and analysis tools guarantee that accurate diagnosis is available to users in all specialties, while the intuitive interface guarantees confident, comfortable use from day one.

Alternatives to adjusting panoramic images

All Planmeca X-ray units are known for their great usability and high image quality. For optimal images in all situations, the Planmeca Romexis® software also offers several efficient tools for image adjustment and enhancement.

Example 1. “Raw” image.  

A normal panoramic image looks like this when it comes to workstation without any additional processing or enhancements.

Planmeca Romexis® has many efficient image adjustment and enhancement tools.

  • Histogram for adjusting levels
  • Contrast slider
  • Brightness slider
  • Sharpening slider
  • Clarify filter for improved image depth and clarity
  • Noise removal
  • Automatic contrast optimiser
  • Invert black to white and white to black
  • Sharpening with more adjustments
  • Virtual soft tissue filter for cephalostat

 Example 2. Adjusting levels with the histogram tool and applying some sharpening.

Example 3.The clarity filter improves image depth and contrast. Some sharpening is also done.

Example 4. The new DICE2 (digital image contrast enhancement) processing enhances contrast and makes small differences more visible. Some sharpening is again applied.

When you have found settings that please your eyes and fit your needs, you can save the adjustments as default in the File menu (Save Image Enhancements as Default Enhancements). DICE2 adjustments happen deeper in the system. If you want to test this function, ask your service technician how to switch it on.
