First launched in October at the American Dental Association (ADA) Annual Session, the compact CS 8100 digital panoramic system delivers highly detailed and optimally contrasted images. Supporting the day-to-day panoramic imaging needs of practices, the CS 8100's capabilities include panoramic imaging (for adult and pediatric patients) as well as segmented panoramic, TMJ and maxillary sinus imaging.
For practices ready for 3D imaging, Carestream Dental's new CS 9300 Select provides practitioners with four selectable fields of view, ranging from 5 cm x 5 cm to 10 cm x 10 cm. A new addition to the CS 9300 family, the CS 9300 Select is complete with 3D cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) and 2D digital panoramic imaging in addition to an optional cephalometric modality. Tailored to meet any practice's diagnostic needs and budget, the CS 9300 Select is ideal for general practitioners and specialists placing implants or performing oral surgeries of the teeth and jaws. Unlike systems limited to a smaller field of view, the CS 9300 Select's 10 cm x 10 cm field of view allows for clear viewing of the second and third molar regions regardless of patient size and gives practitioners the ability to visualize the paranasal sinuses, including the maxillary sinus region prior to sinus lift procedures.
"Carestream Dental continues to deliver high-quality solutions, like the CS 8100 and the CS 9300 Select, that improve diagnoses and treatment planning," said Edward Shellard, D.M.D., chief marketing officer and director of business development for Carestream Dental. "We also work to incorporate features into our software that enable front office teams to work efficiently and save time."
Also during the conference, Carestream Dental is introducing ePrescriptions. This new feature of CS WinOMS allows practices to automatically send electronic patient prescriptions directly to a preferred pharmacy. This helps prevent confusion and possible errors in prescription fulfillment, sometimes resulting from handwritten forms, and saves patients' time since they will no longer have to wait on prescriptions to be filled at their pharmacies.
The AAOMS Dental Implant Conference is also the first meeting for attendees to learn more about three of Carestream Dental's new partners, including:
•Amazing Charts Electronic Health Record (EHR) meets all 25 of the necessary requirements to be certified for meaningful use, enabling eligible CS WinOMS customers to receive the significant financial incentives offered by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services under the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act.
•In 2013, PBHS will release iConsult v3.0, which will soon offer two-way integration with CS WinOMS Practice Management Software. With iConsult v3.0, the entire consultation, including all images, documents, informed consents, forms, notes, diagrams and audio files are automatically synced and integrated back into your patient's CS WinOMS account.
•OMS3's Practice Pilot uses CS WinOMS data to provide numerous customizable dashboards to visualize practices' key productivity indicators for referrals, collections, provider performance, marketing, procedure code analysis and office performance.
