ATLANTA—Carestream Dental has announced the CS 8200 3D family, its newest set of imaging systems. The CS 8200 3D is a versatile multi-modality system that includes 2D panoramic imaging, CBCT imaging, 3D object scanning and optional cephalometric imaging with the added enhancements of larger FOVs and advanced algorithms.
Six selectable FOVs, from 4 cm x 4 cm to 12 cm x 10 cm, cover both daily clinical applications and more advanced treatments. The EndoHD mode, available on the smallest FOV, delivers high-resolution scans (75 µm) to see the finest details of root canal morphology. On the opposite end of the spectrum, the new extended volume sizes—12 cm x 5 cm and 12 cm x 10 cm—can capture full arch images, including third molars, in a single scan for performing complex implant cases, periodontics, oral surgery and orthodontics.
“The CS 8200 3D helps doctors expand their treatment options or add a specialist to their practice so they can keep patients in-house for more control over cases,” said Ed Shellard, DMD, chief dental officer, Carestream Dental. “Also, given the global health crisis, patients are looking for ways to cut down on appointments and reduce their time outside the home; so, acting as a central point of care is appealing to patients for both convenience and safety reasons.”
One of Carestream Dental’s latest innovations, Tomosharp technology, generates sharp panoramic images, even when the patient is not perfectly aligned. Advanced noise reduction reduces image noise while preserving clinical details, which is especially valuable for high-resolution scans. Optional CS MAR software reduces metal artifacts caused by implants and dental fillings and provides a unique tool to compare live images with and without CS MAR applied.
For even more diagnostic capabilities, practices can add the optional Scan Ceph module that delivers best-in-class cephalometric imaging and scanning times. Its imaging software includes an automatic tracing feature* that can provide a fully traced ceph in as little as 10 seconds, leaving more time for case presentation and patient communication.
“We’ve been listening to the oral health care community and what we were hearing was the need for a system that is simple in design and ease-of-use, but powerful in imaging,” said Stephane Varlet, global equipment business line manager, Carestream Dental. “Starting with a proven and compact platform then scaling up in terms of capabilities let us deliver more options for doctors who are looking for CBCT solutions.”
