Florida orthopaedic practice installs Carestream OnSight 3D extremity system

Dec. 13, 2018

Orthopedic Center of Palm Beach County installed a CARESTREAM OnSight 3D Extremity System at its Atlantis, FL, headquarters location.

This extremity imaging system is both affordable and convenient for patients because the imaging exam and diagnosis can be performed in one office visit, CEO John Hornberger explains.

The system has been used for diagnosis of subtle Lisfranc and wrist fractures, as well as flat foot deformities. It also is instrumental for trauma decision making, pre-operative planning and analysis of fusion progression.

A key feature of the system is the metal artifact reduction software that provides enhanced visualization of metal content and reduces the visual distortion caused by screws, implants, rods, and other metal objects to create improved visibility and diagnostic confidence.

Unlike traditional CT technology, this cone beam CT system has a large-area detector that captures a 3D image of the extremity in a single rotation, which takes only 25 seconds. 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 traditional CT systems. Dose is significantly reduced because only the affected body part is imaged. The compact extremity system can be installed in an exam room and plugs into a standard wall outlet.
