Key Takeaways:

  • Enhanced Collaboration: The integration allows dental professionals to easily access BeamReaders’ oral and maxillofacial radiology expertise for second opinions, improving diagnostic reliability.

A new integration with BeamReaders within CareStream Dental’s CS Imaging version 8 software allows users to get a second opinion on 3D images. The sharing of images and treatment information is made possible through Click & Share, a new clinical services platform from Swissmeda.

Click & Share Integration with BeamReaders

BeamReaders is a provider of oral and maxillofacial radiology reporting services, dedicated to improving patient care. When doctors need a second opinion on 3D interpretation, Click & Share makes experts at BeamReaders available for support when making critical diagnostic and treatment decisions.

“We are excited to be Carestream Dental’s premier integration partner for its Click & Share technology,” said Cory Hatcher, BeamReaders chief executive officer. “The seamless integration creates one-click access to the imaging expertise of our team of oral and maxillofacial radiologists, saving time and ultimately enhancing patient care.”

Enhanced Imaging Capabilities in CS Imaging

Click & Share can be found in the latest version of CS Imaging—the imaging hub that centralizes and displays Carestream Dental imaging data. The secure, HIPAA-compliant platform allows dental professionals to quickly share images and cuts back on the need to export images, zip files or log into a separate portal to upload.

It can also help users avoid mistakes on exports and save on back-and-forth time when it comes to submitting the right files/formats. Plus, it allows for a larger variety of data sets to be shared, including CBCT volumes, according to Carestream.

Improving Clinical Confidence and Workflow

“Having quick and easy access to expert interpretations can increase doctors’ confidence in their use of 3D imaging,” said Jeremy Thomas, vice president, growth initiatives, Carestream Dental. “That could mean being more comfortable using larger FOVs or exploring new clinical workflows they hadn’t considered before, but at the end of the day it means better care for patients.”

Click & Share is made possible by Carestream Dental’s clinical software and cloud sharing brand, Swissmeda. Current users of CS Imaging can upgrade to the latest version at no cost.
