March 9, 2017 — Carestream will demonstrate its OnSight 3-D Extremity System that uses cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) technology to capture high-quality, low-dose 3-D extremity exams at the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) annual meeting and exhibit, March 14-18 in San Diego.

Carestream is shipping its OnSight 3-D Extremity System in the United States, Europe and other countries.

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.

Resurgens Orthopaedics, Atlanta, evaluated several extremity CT systems, according to John R. Gleason, M.D., the company’s co-president. “We were looking for an extremity imaging system that offered a large field size, excellent image quality and the ability to perform weight-bearing exams. After testing Carestream’s

OnSight 3-D Extremity System for several months, we verified that Carestream excelled in all these areas and purchased the system,” Gleason reported.

Capturing 3-D images onsite allows specialists to review the exam and conduct a patient consultation in a single visit, according to Lisa Hecht, X-ray manager at Resurgens Orthopaedics, which has 21 sites and almost 100 physicians.

“This streamlined process maximizes productivity for our orthopedic specialists and offers greater convenience for patients by eliminating the need to travel to another facility for a 3-D imaging exam,” Hecht reported. “Even more importantly, radiologists and orthopedists are extremely impressed with the image quality offered by this system.”
