Carestream, Quantum Medical Imaging spotlight new CBCT research, DR systems for orthopaedic and sports medicine care providers
At the upcoming Orthopaedic Trauma Association conference that begins Oct. 7, Carestream Health is showcasing new products, software and technology in development that can address the demanding needs of orthopaedic and sports medicine care providers.
Carestream is partnering with top orthopaedic and sports medicine specialists to design a new cone beam CT (CBCT) medical imaging system for capturing images of patient extremities including knees, legs, feet, arms and hands. Ongoing clinical studies focus on the advantages of CBCT technology in the diagnosis and treatment of knee injuries. These studies will help guide Carestream’s development of new CBCT systems that can: offer excellent visualization of bone and soft tissue; capture weight-bearing images of knees, legs and feet; use less radiation than traditional CT; are compact and affordable; and could be used in a wide range of facilities.
The CBCT system used in this study is INVESTIGATIONAL and NOT AVAILABLE FOR COMMERCIAL SALE.
