Kodak’s Health Group provided dental imaging and information systems to assist dental staff at three Olympic polyclinics in Torino, Bardonecchia, and Sestriere , Italy , to treat craniofacial-dental injuries as well as provide standard dental care and treatment for participating athletes in the 2006 Olympics.

“These advanced solutions can streamline processes, improve patient and provider communication, and enhance the level of care provided to Olympic athletes,” says Rich Hirschland, general manager, dental systems, and vice president of Kodak’s Dental Systems Group.

All dental images taken at the Olympics were stored and shared with radiologists and other specialists in case of facial traumas. When the Olympic games concluded, the equipment Kodak provided to the polyclinics remained in Italy and was transferred to local health care organizations.
