A computer model of a system for rotational panoramic radiography has been used to study the effect of errors in film speed and beam alignment on the position of the image layer. The results of the study indicate that the position of the layer is very sensitive to deviations from the proper film speed and deviations from the proper phase relationships between the beam position and the film speed. There is a demand for highly accurate alignment of rotational panoramic units.
