PRESS RELEASE: CS 8100 Family Reaches Major Milestone—More than 10,000 Systems Sold
“Innovation runs in the CS 8100 Family’s ‘genes’,” Ed Shellard, D.M.D, vice president, sales and marketing, Carestream Dental, said, regarding the significant milestone of the CS 8100 Family. As of September 2016, more than 10,000 CS 8100 Family systems had been sold, enhancing the workflow of thousands of doctors and improving the oral health of even more patients around the world.
“Over the past four years, we’ve built on the success of the original design concept of the CS 8100 by developing a 3D imaging unit—the CS 8100 3D extraoral imaging system—and a scanning cephalometric unit—the CS 8100SC panoramic and cephalometric imaging system. Today, the CS 8100, CS 8100 3D and CS 8100SC make up the CS 8100 Family.”
The CS 8100, which was introduced in 2012, supports the day-to-day panoramic imaging needs of small practices, including segmented panoramic, TMJ and maxillary sinus imaging. It’s known as the most compact digital panoramic system on the market, and has been recognized for its award-winning design. Within a year of its launch, the CS 8100 earned six clinical and design awards from countries around the world. Even today, it still garners awards and recognition.
After the launch of the CS 8100, Carestream Dental engineers soon realized that doctors were looking for the benefits of in-office cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) without having to sacrifice valuable office space. The CS 8100 3D was introduced in 2014 as Carestream Dental’s solution—it has the same small footprint and 2D imaging capabilities of the CS 8100 but with the added benefits of 3D imaging and 3D model scanning.
“Some of my favorite features are its compact size, multi-function 2D/3D imaging and easy, mistake-free acquisition—I’ve taken over 50 scans so far and have never missed the area of interest,” Peter Kapsimalis, D.M.D., Summit , N.J. “Not only does the unit feature quick scan times and distortion-free images, it’s also easy for my staff to position patients, and their comfort level really puts my patients at ease.”
The CS 8100 Family grew again in 2015 with the introduction of the CS 8100SC. The system offers the fastest scanning times of any scanning cephalometric unit on the market, as low as three seconds*. Advanced Carestream Dental imaging software recognizes anatomical structures and traces them automatically and can go from scanning to tracing within 90 seconds.
“When I decided to add cephalometric imaging capabilities to my new orthodontic office, I opted for a CS 8100SC, which enables me to perform both panoramic and cephalometric imaging without changing the sensor between scans,” Noam Green, D.M.D., Green Orthodontics, Decatur, Ga., said. “Training on the system is almost unnecessary because of how straightforward and intuitive the user interface is.”
Engineers and researchers and developers at Carestream Dental continue to learn from and build on the technology of the CS 8100 systems. For certain, the CS 8100 Family is not done growing. As long as doctors seek cost-effective, high-quality imaging, Carestream Dental will continue to provide the solutions to meet the needs of their practices and their patients.
