CarestreamDental_CS AirwayCarestream Dental, Atlanta, is launching its CS Airway Module at CDA North today. The module, an enhancement available in the CS 3D Imaging software, allows orthodontists and general practitioners to analyze the airway in 3D.

The CS Airway module provides a color view of the pharyngeal region to help practitioners visualize constrictions in airway passages. Users can customize the color scale with their preferred threshold to suit their individual needs. According to the company, the color coding also provides a valuable tool when educating patients as colored 3D renderings allow doctors to show patients before-and-after treatment volumes. Images can also be shared with referrals, patients, or insurance companies.

The module provides users a segmentation capability in as few as two clicks. CS Airway can also automatically calculate total volume, minimum cross-sectional area, minimum Anterior-Posterior and Left-Right measurements. These measurement values are displayed in real time as the user browses the slice or changes the angulations of the view.

CS Airway is an optional module for CS 3D Imaging and is compatible with CS 9300 and CS 9300 Select volumes. The CS 9300 features Low Dose mode.

CDA North takes place August 24 to 26 in San Francisco.
