The new unit is a multi-modality system that includes 2D panoramic imaging, CBCT imaging, 3D object scanning, and optional cephalometric imaging.

Carestream Dental has announced the release of its new CBCT imaging system, the CS 8200 3D. The new unit is a 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 that help doctors see more.

Six selectable FOVs, from 4 cm by 4 cm to 12 cm by 10 cm cover both daily clinical applications and more advanced treatments. The EndoHD mode, available on the smallest FOV, delivers extremely high-resolution scans (75 μm) to see even the finest details of root canal morphology. On the opposite end of the spectrum, the new extended volume sizes*—12 cm by 5 cm and 12 cm by 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, is designed to generate sharp panoramic images effortlessly, 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. The optional CS MAR software feature 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 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.

Both the CS 8200 3D and the CS 8200 3D with Scan Ceph module are supported by Carestream’s latest imaging software, CS Imaging version 8, a hub that centralizes all of a practice’s 2D and 3D images and CAD/CAM data.
