Imaging System Adds Cephalometric and 3-D Capabilities

Dentistry Today


Carestream Dental now offers its CS 8100 3-D system with a cephalometric imaging option in addition to several new 3-D applications. The CS 8100SC 3D boasts the fastest scanning time of any scanning cephalometric unit on the market at as little as 3 seconds, according to the company. Also, its exclusive imaging software recognizes anatomical structures and traces them automatically, going from scanning to tracing within 90 seconds to improve efficiency.

At 72.5 inches wide, the CS 8100SC 3D fits into practices of all sizes. With panoramic, cephalometric, and CBCT imaging options, including multiple 3-D fields of view (from 4 x 4 cm to 8 x 8 cm), it suits orthodontists, general practitioners, and multispeciality practices.

The updated 3-D applications are part of the CS Solutions for Implants portfolio, which includes the optional prosthetic-driven implant planning module that combines CBCT volumes with digital impression data sets along with a virtual crown and implant for “crown-down” implant planning.

As part of the CS Solutions for Orthodontics portfolio, the system can scan traditional impressions or plaster models to create digital models for easier storage. These models then can be manipulated and analyzed in 3-D using CS Model software.

With its new low-dose program, the CS 8100SC 3D can deliver 3-D imaging at a dose equal to or lower than panoramic imaging while still capturing high-quality images, Carestream reports, suiting pediatric, orthodontic, and follow-up examinations.

And, the system’s CS Adapt module enables doctors to customize the look and feel, including image contrast and sharpness, of panoramic and cephalometric images to suit their clinical needs. Doctors who already own a CS 8100 3D can upgrade to the CS 8100SC 3D.
