Carestream to exhibit CBCT Solution, OnSight 3D Extremity, which enables 3D weight-bearing exams at JFR

GENEVA, October 10—On its booth at this year's Journées Francophones de Radiologie (JFR) Congress (Level 1, Ternes Hall, Booth N°1T01), Carestream Health will be exhibiting the CARESTREAM OnSight 3D Extremity System. This uses cone beam CT technology to capture high-quality, 3D weight-bearing and other types of extremity exams for orthopaedic practices, imaging centres, and hospitals at the point of care. Its easy-open bore and patient access allow weight-bearing studies that are simply not possible with traditional CT. Minimal site and install requirements enable a fast, affordable and convenient imaging process for timely diagnosis and commencement of treatment.

‘This system offers excellent 3D image quality and equips orthopaedic surgeons with enhanced diagnostic content for detecting subtle fractures, soft tissue injuries and other conditions of the hand, wrist and upper extremities,' said Helen Titus, Carestream’s Worldwide Marketing Director for Ultrasound & CT. ‘Fully processed images are available in about three minutes, which helps specialists make a timely diagnosis and offer treatment recommendations.’

The OnSight 3D Extremity System can assist surgeons in detecting occult and non-union carpal bone fractures. These fractures are common and up to 20 percent of Scaphoid fractures cannot be detected with a 2D X-ray but show up clearly in 3D volumes produced by the OnSight system.

Unlike traditional CT systems, the CBCT system has a large-area detector that captures a 3D image of the extremity in a single rotation, which takes only 25 seconds. A patient simply places the injured extremity into a donut-shaped opening in the system. Since the patient’s head and body are not confined patients do not experience the claustrophobia that often occurs with traditional CT systems.
