Software Integration Improves Digital Imaging

Carestream Dental announces new integration between its CS 9600 CBCT system and TDO Software’s TDO 12 package. TDO 12 users now can acquire CS 9600 scans directly from within the TDO platform with no need to launch their CS imaging software, reducing the need for complicated software bridges and the risk of human error that comes with simultaneously managing multiple software platforms on one screen, the companies report.

“Besides streamlining the imaging capturing process, this integration also allows endodontists to take advantage of TDO’s contemporaneous reporting features in the software’s Imaging Organizer,” said Jordan Reiss, sales director of ENT and 3-D imaging at Carestream Dental. 

“We are happy to announce that our integration with the CS 9600 is now available for offices using TDO Software,” said Luiz Motta, general manager of TDO Software. “As we are always looking to offer new and improved services for our users, we have extended our existing CBCT integration to support the CS 9600 and its additional functionalities including the CS MAR technology.”

The CS 9600 offers CBCT scanning along with 3-D facial scanning, 3-D model/impression scanning, and extraoral bitewings. Multiple fields of view as small as 4 by 4 cm reveal tooth anatomy from all angles. The system also offers a new 8-cm (height) by 5-cm diameter that can be used to diagnose pain radiating to a quadrant that cannot be localized to either the maxilla or mandible.

The system’s 120-kV high-power generator can acquire images at a dose equivalent to the standard 90-kV acquisition while increasing image quality, Carestream Dental says. Also, its HR mode captures highly detailed images that are ideal for endodontics with a 75-µm resolution available on all fields of view ranging from 4 by 4 cm to 10 by 10 cm, the company adds.

Once a scan is captures, the CS 9600’s exclusive CS MAR technology is designed to further enhance images. This high-end metal artifact reduction algorithm reduces the scatter that can be caused by metal such as implants, says Carestream Dental. Unique to the CS 9600, it lets doctors perform live comparisons of the dataset with and without a MAR filter in real time to analyze the region of interest for a more accurate diagnosis, according to the company.

TDO already integrates with Carestream Dental’s RVG 6200 sensor, the CS 8100 3D and CS 9300 CBCT systems, and the CS 1500 intraoral camera.
