Looking for an inexpensive scanner with a transparency adapter that can scan dental panoramic film.

How would a transparency adapter make a difference in the actual scan? Doesn't it just hold the transparency down just like a negative adapter?

Have had several typical scanners and they do not properly scan dental films. Our tech reps have said a transparency adapter is needed to "back" the film so the "scan" doesn't bounce through. Does that make sense? Not sure how to explain it.

You will need a transparency adapter which is a specialized piece of hardware that emits light behind your transparency so that your flatbed scanner can properly scan it.
Alternatively, you will need a film scanner.
