April 14, 2017 — Carestream Health will demonstrate the potential for gains in both productivity and profitability offered by its Carestream OnSight 3-D Extremity System at the American Academy of Orthopaedic Executives annual meeting being held April 22-25 in Indianapolis.

The OnSight 3D Extremity System performs high-quality, low-dose 3-D extremity exams using cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) technology. In addition to being compact and easy to install, it captures high-quality 3-D images including weight-bearing exams of lower extremities under normal load conditions.

Carestream commissioned DevicePharm, an independent consulting organization, to work with four U.S. orthopedic practices to create baseline models to assess the potential profitability of the OnSight system. The models included: utilization data from the practices; regional reimbursement, staffing and operational models; and equipment expenses including purchase and service agreements. The models represented moderate, low-to-mid range, mid-to-high range and high imaging volumes for practices with either five or 10 orthopaedic surgeons.

“Point-of-care cone beam CT imaging will change the practice of orthopedics in terms of diagnostic specificity, accuracy of diagnosis and a better patient experience,” said Brian Polsky, M.D., of Baltimore, who participated in the study that assessed the operational and financial potential for users of the OnSight system. “It also will deliver practice improvements in operational efficiency and financial performance.”

Unlike traditional CT systems, the CBCT system has a large-area detector that can capture a 3-D image of the patient in a single rotation, which takes only 25 seconds. The compact OnSight system can be plugged into an electrical outlet in an exam room. It also offers a door that opens to allow patients to step into the system’s imaging area and performs weight-bearing exams that are not possible with conventional CT systems.
