Carestream Dental’s IO Scanner Link Provides More Options, Easier Access to Intraoral Scans

CS Imaging version 8 software now connects to multiple intraoral scanner acquisition software and permits the delivery of intraoral scans from third-party software to CS Imaging.

Dentists using digital workflows can now take advantage of Carestream Dental’s IO Scanner Link, the company’s latest innovation that allows CS Imaging version 8 software to directly connect to third-party intraoral scanners’ acquisition software not developed by Carestream Dental.

IO Scanner Link is more than a manual file import/export option and, according to Carestream Dental, now makes a seamlessly connected digital practice a reality. It leverages CS Imaging 8—the imaging hub that centralizes and displays all of a user’s Carestream Dental imaging data—as the core practice platform to drive efficiency and connectivity. By aggregating, storing and managing all images through a single software and patient database, a practitioner can optimize and simplify the workflow in their digital dental practice.

“In today’s digitally connected practice, it’s all about choice,” Philippe Maillet, general manager, imaging equipment, Carestream Dental, says in a press release. “The choice to connect your existing technology with a multitude of partners or devices to create the workflow that’s right for your practice.”

Within CS Imaging 8, an integrated button allows intraoral scans from supported third-party scanners, along with all the necessary patient data, to be launched with just 1 click. When the scan is complete, the intraoral scan is automatically imported back into CS Imaging 8 to be used for implant planning through Carestream Dental’s Prosthetic-driven Implant Planning (PDIP) module; surgical guide design with Smop software; sharing with labs; or exporting to other third-party software.

Making it easy for practitioners to use the intraoral scanner of their choice and giving them unrestricted access to their preferred clinical solutions aids them in optimizing their daily treatments through an efficient workflow, according to Maillet.

Medit is the latest intraoral scanner manufacturer to integrate with CS Imaging 8 through IO Scanner Link. This will allow users of Carestream Dental imaging equipment and Medit intraoral scanners to integrate their favorite devices with a single click of a button. Medit scanning solutions support both Windows and Mac computers.

CS Imaging 8 also connects with DEXIS intraoral scanners. In the coming months, Carestream Dental plans to expand the number of integrations to give practitioners even more choices.

CS Imaging 8 is one of the most widely used dental imaging software on the market, thanks to its user-friendly, modern interface. To learn more about CS Imaging 8, IO Scanner Link or any of Carestream Dental’s innovative solutions, you can visit
