The central plane of the image layer was located in several panoramic machines of the same manufacturer by making radiographs of a spherical test object placed in different positions. A round image indicated that the test object was at the central plane. The inconsistency of the location of the central plane in machines tested indicates the need for establishing a quality assurance test to verify image-layer location before patient exposure.
