Carestream Spotlights Medical Imaging Technology At India’s Largest Orthopaedic Conference
Mumbai, India, December 2018: Carestream Health demonstrated its expanding portfolio of medical imaging systems at the 63rd Annual Conference of Indian Orthopaedic Association (IOACON 2018) at Coimbatore.
Carestream representatives showcased the unique benefits of the CARESTREAM OnSight 3D Extremity System that equips hospitals, orthopaedic practices and other imaging services providers with high-resolution 3D images,that offer advanced anatomical detail to help orthopaedic specialists make more accurate diagnostic and treatment decisions.
The OnSight system captures high-quality, weight-bearing imaging studies for patients with a wide range of injuries and conditions of the knee, foot, ankle and other extremities.
Unlike traditional CT technology, Carestream’s system has a large detector that easily captures a 3D image of the extremity in a single rotation. A patient simply places the injured extremity into a donut-shaped bore in the system. Since the patient’s head and body are not confined, patients do not experience the claustrophobia that often occurs with CT systems.
“Orthopaedic specialists around the world are adopting the OnSight 3D Extremity System because it offers high-quality, lower-dose 3D imaging and delivers greater convenience for physicians and their patients,” said Sushant Kinra, MD, Carestream Health India Pvt. Ltd.
Other products showcased at the conference were the Carestream Vita Flex CR System, Carestream DRX Core wireless Detector and the DryView 5700 Laser Imager
Carestream focuses on delivering innovation that is life-changing—for patients, customers, employees, communities and other stakeholders—while enhancing operations for a broad range of healthcare facilities and helping medical professionals provide quality care.
