Panoramic X-Ray Computer file Size.

Hi, I received my Panormaic X-Ray via email today. The file size is 124KB. Is this file size typical ? I would
have expected it to be larger and in the Megabytes.
Depending on the software they're often compressed for emailing.
What I am trying to determine is are OPG X-Rays very small or was I sent a shrinked version. Once I know I will get back to the sender. Based on the size of photos from Digital Cameras I assume I got the shrinked version
but I honestly don't know what file size to expect.
The file size of one of my digital pans is 4.16mb
