ROCHESTER, N.Y., Nov. 10 — Carestream is accepting orders from healthcare providers across the globe and announced plans to begin shipping its OnSight 3D Extremity System (video link) in December. 
 
The OnSight 3D Extremity system uses cone beam CT (CBCT) technology to capture weight-bearing and other types of extremity exams and will be on display at the Radiological Society of North America conference (Booth #4704).
 
“Our affordable, compact system provides high-quality, lower-dose 3D imaging studies. This makes it an ideal diagnostic tool for orthopaedic and sports medicine practices, hospitals, imaging centers, urgent care facilities and other healthcare providers,” said Helen Titus, Carestream’s Worldwide Marketing Director for Ultrasound & CT Solutions.
 
“Orthopaedic imaging is a major focus for Carestream because of the prevalence of musculoskeletal conditions among people of all ages. Youth and adults often suffer sports-related injuries to their knees, ankles and feet while older adults experience arthritis, joint instability, meniscus loss and other conditions,” she explains.

The new extremity imaging system can help with diagnosis and treatment for orthopaedic conditions that affect the biomechanical behavior of the joints such as arthritis, meniscus loss, instability and malalignment syndromes.
 
Carestream’s extremity imaging system enables healthcare providers to capture high-quality 3D images and conduct a patient consultation in a single visit—which helps improve productivity and convenience for both specialists and patients. An additional benefit is the ability for patients to view a 3D image that illustrates their condition or injury to help them understand the reason for a treatment or surgical procedure.
 
This system is not available for commercial sale in Canada.
