Normal Panoramic Image (Diagram 7-2) Notice that structures have been left out. This is to emphasize that not many structures need to be identified to properly troubleshoot the image for technique errors. In this diagram, the nose and sinus as well as the maxilla are left out because nothing goes wrong here in the perfect image. There is no distinct image of the lips, nose, or ears, nor is there any undesirable air. The teeth, mandible body, ramus, TMJs, and spine are nicely imaged as just described.
