Carestream installs OnSight 3D CT in San Diego

By AuntMinnie.com staff writers

July 17, 2020 -- Carestream Health has installed its OnSight 3D extremity CT scanner at Rady Children's Hospital in San Diego.

The system is located at the hospital's main 505-bed facility, which sees roughly 50,000 orthopedic patients a year. Utilizing conebeam CT, OnSight 3D is used to examine intra-articular fractures at the elbow, foot, and ankle, typically after an emergency room visit in which the patient's broken bones are casted.

The orthopedic surgeon can discuss treatment options before a patient leaves the site because images from the Carestream scanner are used as part of the consultation. Prior to the installation, patients had to wait on surgical decisions based on exams conducted after the consultation, which could delay critical assessments for weeks, the hospital said.
