Carestream’s OnSight 3D Extremity System Receives FDA 510(K) Clearance

The Carestream OnSight 3D Extremity System that uses cone beam CT (CBCT) technology to capture weight-bearing and other types of extremity exams has received FDA 510(k) clearance.

This compact system offers high-quality, lower-dose 3D imaging studies for use by orthopedic and sports medicine practices, hospitals, imaging centers, urgent care facilities and other health care providers.

“Our extremity imaging system can help in treating a host of orthopedic conditions that affect the biomechanical behavior of the joints such as arthritis, meniscus loss, instability and malalignment syndromes,” said Helen Titus, Carestream’s Worldwide Marketing Director for Ultrasound & CT Solutions. “This new system offers less radiation than traditional CT systems while delivering excellent image quality.”

Carestream’s new extremity imaging system enables health care providers to capture high-quality 3D images and conduct a patient consultation in a single visit – which helps improve productivity and convenience for 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.
