May 24, 2016 — Carestream representatives will describe the benefits of its Carestream OnSight 3-D Extremity System at the American Association of Orthopedic Executives conference, June 9-12 in San Francisco.

The compact cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) system — which is pending U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) clearance — is intended to offer high-quality, low-dose 3-D imaging for orthopedic practices. The system uses CBCT technology to capture weight-bearing and other types of extremity exams.

According to Carestream, the system is designed to allow orthopedic practices to conduct a patient consultation in a single visit. In addition, showing patients a 3-D image that illustrates their condition or injury can help them understand the reason for a treatment or surgical procedure — and accept the specialist’s recommendation. 

Also, capturing 3-D and weight-bearing images can be a competitive advantage for an orthopedic practice. “When this system is available, orthopedists may decide to market their practice’s ability to deliver greater patient convenience by eliminating the need to go to another facility for a 3-D imaging exam,” explained Helen Titus, Carestream’s worldwide marketing director for ultrasound and CT solutions.
