Carestream Dental, Atlanta, has launched sales of its CS 9300 and CS 9300C extraoral imaging systems in Canada. The CS 9300 offers 2D digital panoramic imaging with variable focal trough technology. Additionally, the CS 9300 features 3D imaging with up to seven selectable fields of view, ranging from 5 cm x 5 cm to 17 cm x 13.5 cm.
In addition to panoramic and 3D imaging, the CS 9300C produces cephalometric images in a single shot, to better minimize distortion and risk of blurred images due to patient movement. The CS 9300C offers a range of image formats from 24 cm x 30 cm to 18 cm x 18 cm. According to the company, the CS 9300C’s cephalometric module addresses any orthodontic diagnostic and tracing need and even includes an exclusive full cranial option. The CS 9300C is certified by OraMetrix Inc for use with its SureSmile® technology.
Both the cephalometric and 3D imaging modalities enable practitioners to limit radiation exposure by collimating the imaging area down to a precise region of interest.
Both systems come pre-installed with Carestream Dental’s industry-leading imaging software that has been designed by clinicians, for clinicians. According to the company, the system automatically positions to the region of interest depending on the program selected; laser beams and motorized movement deliver precise alignment; and preview image “scout” technology lets users evaluate patient positioning before 3D acquisition. The systems provide both standing and seated options available, and accommodate patients of all sizes.
