Carestream Dental's intelligent CS 9600 CBCT imaging system has received its fourth Cellerant Best of Class Technology Award. The machine combines powerful imaging, advanced software and artificial intelligence (AI) to make it Carestream Dental's "smartest" imaging system to date.
The five-in-one system's intuitive features make patient positioning easier for first-time-right imaging every time and AI technology automatically detects and traces the Frankfort plane. The CS 9600's pre-set programs, quality control tools and ability to automatically detect when the wrong accessory is selected all go into making the system a winner.
"When you can avoid mistakes that lead to retakes you have more time for diagnosis and patient care," said Stephane Varlet, global product line manager for extraoral imaging, Carestream Dental. "Years ago, I helped a doctor who was unhappy with the image quality of his system—upon closer inspection it turns out that an accessory was inserted incorrectly. That kicked off the inspiration for the CS 9600: A system that doesn't just capture high-quality images but make it easier and more intuitive to capture those images."
Those easy, intuitive features are what led to the CS 9600 being selected to receive the 2022 Cellerant Best of Class Technology Award by a panel of the most prominent technology leaders in dentistry. Since the inaugural presentation in 2009, the Best of Class Technology Awards have grown to occupy a unique space in dentistry by creating awareness in the community of manufacturers that are driving the discussion as to how practices will operate now and in the future.
The CS 9600 is available in three editions with 10, 12 and 14 fields of view (FOV)s. In addition to 2D and 3D imaging and object scanning, practices have the option to include face scanning or a scanning cephalometric arm. Additionally, the optional CS UpStream program helps Carestream Dental's support team monitor historical performance and prevent downtime and maximize system availability. Today, there are nearly 2,000 CS 9600 systems installed worldwide that have captured a combined 5 million acquisitions.
The CS 9600 is also the recipient of a 2021, 2020 and 2019 Cellerant Best of Class Technology Award, as well as a 2019 Edison Award seal in the Medical/Dental Diagnostics category and the Krakdent Medal of the Highest Quality from the International Fair KRAKDENT®.
