Carestream Dental’s CS Airway module is the latest enhancement for the company’s CS 3-D imaging software. It’d designed to aid general practitioners and orthodontists in quickly analyzing the airway in 3-D for clearer visualization, faster analysis, and enhanced communication with patients. 

The CS Airway module gives doctors a color-coded, 3-D view of the pharyngeal region to help visualize constrictions in airway passages. Doctors can customize the color scale with their preferred threshold to suit their individual needs. Color coding is also valuable in patient education. Color 3-D renderings allow doctors to easily communicate with patients by showing before-and-after treatment volumes, according to Carestream Dental.

The module further enhances airway analysis by providing segmentation in as few as 2 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.
