Dental X-ray. Girl undergoing a panoramic mouth X-ray. The machine, above and around the girl, will rotate around her to obtain an X-ray view of her whole mouth. The X-ray plate (not seen) is being held inside the patient's closed mouth. X- rays will be passed through the adjacent teeth to expose the plate. This allows the diagnosis of dental conditions, like cavities, in a localised area and without the excessive use of X-rays.
