Atlanta — Carestream Health has received FDA 510(k) clearance and is now shipping the new CS 9300, a point-of-care computed tomography (CT) system tailored for otolaryngology (ENT) and allergy practices.
The company’s press release says that the CS 9300 was designed for low acquisition and operating costs, potentially allowing ENT physicians to receive a fast return on investment with potentially faster diagnosis and treatment of patients.
Low radiation is especially important for pediatric patients and adult patients requiring multiple CT scans. The CS 9300’s cone beam CT (CBCT) technology reportedly delivers up to 94% less radiation than conventional CT scanners.
The CS 9300 is a complete, turnkey solution and includes comprehensive on-site and remote CT accreditation support that is provided by a leading expert in CT accreditation, according to Carestream. This added benefit also includes in-depth accreditation application support, policy and procedures, third party medical physicist services, quality control testing support, and final review of accreditation application materials.
The CS 9300 also offers flexibility, giving users a broad range of image resolutions (0.09 mm to 0.5 mm slice thickness) and five selectable sinus and temporal bone fields of view ranging from 5 cm x 5 cm to 17 cm x 13.5 cm.
The CBCT solution’s high resolution images allow ENT physicians to clearly visualize the fine bony structures of the temporal bone, such as middle ear structures. An additional one-shot, cephalometric imaging option is set for release for the CS 9300 later this year.
