SAN FRANCISCO – Carestream Dental today launched the CS 8100 digital panoramic system at the American Dental Association (ADA) Annual Session, being held through Oct. 21 in San Francisco. Carestream Dental is also showcasing recent releases, including the CS 9300 Select, CS SoftDent v15.0 and CS PracticeWorks v7.5, which together put superior 3D imaging within reach of more practitioners and streamline practice workflows.
The new CS 8100 digital panoramic systemfeatures the latest imaging technology, offering practitioners a variety of imaging programs to obtain high-quality images effortlessly for improved diagnoses and treatments. With its compact footprint, the CS 8100 can be placed in even the smallest spaces.
Supporting the day-to-day panoramic imaging needs of practices, the CS 8100’s capabilities include panoramic imaging (for adults and pediatric patients) as well as segmented panoramic, TMJ and maxillary sinus imaging. The unit offers practitioners an intuitive user interface and computer control system that makes exams quick and simple. The system also comes with pre-set programs that minimize the setup required for exams, saving time and reducing operator errors.
In addition to its versatile imaging options, the CS 8100 also comes with exclusive 2D+ technology that enables practitioners to create slices at regular intervals along the jaw to focus on one area of interest and visualize more details than standard 2D images reveal. These images can help practitioners determine the location of supernumerary teeth, find impactions and apical lesions, or identify the root relationship to the inferior alveolar canal.
“Designed with practices’ workflows in mind, the CS 8100 makes panoramic imaging easier and faster for practitioners, with high-quality images accessible in seconds,” said Edward Shellard, D.M.D., chief marketing officer and director of business development for Carestream Dental. “This unit also sets new standards for ease of patient positioning, ensuring better image quality while offering greater patient comfort.”
For practices ready for 3D imaging, Carestream Dental’s new CS 9300 Selectis tailored to meet any practice’s diagnostic needs and budget. 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. The differences between the CS 9300 Select and the original CS 9300 (launched in 2011) are the number and sizes of the 3D fields of view offered. The CS 9300 Select provides four selectable fields of view ranging from 5 cm x 5 cm to 10 cm x 10 cm. These fields of view are suitable for general practitioners and specialists placing implants or performing endodontic procedures, periodontal treatments and oral surgeries of the teeth and jaws.
As part of the company’s commitment to streamlining workflow with user-friendly solutions, Carestream Dental recently released CS SoftDent v15.0. This updated version features the new Scheduler, the most advanced scheduling software. The new Scheduler is designed to give practice administrators a better handle on the interruptive environment of the front desk. Intuitive and easy to use, the Scheduler’s multi-tasking capabilities let users easily resume partially completed tasks. Practitioners can add and schedule patients in a single, simple step with the advanced drag and drop functionality.
Another recent release, CS PracticeWorks v7.5supports two new eServices that streamline reimbursement and patient registration. ePostings automatically notifies users when EOBs are received and then posts the payments directly to the appropriate patients within CS PracticeWorks. eForms allows patients to complete registration paperwork online at home or at a computer when they arrive for their appointments.
“CS SoftDent and CS PracticeWorks also integrate seamlessly with Carestream Dental’s imaging software,” Shellard said. “This integration means that once images are captured, they can be stored in patients’ electronic charts for quick and easy access.”
