ATLANTA, Georgia--The KODAK 9000 3D Extraoral Imaging System received
high ratings from dental professionals who were surveyed as part of a product review published in the March issue of Dental Product Shopper.
The 3D imaging system combines focused-field 3D Cone Beam CT imaging with panoramic imaging to provide a "two in one" system.
On a scale of 1-5, the 3D imaging system received an overall rating of 4.8 with
scores of 4.6 or higher for its ability to aid in treatment planning through increased visibility/clarity, system productivity/efficiency, ease of use, anatomical accuracy, staff satisfaction, and patient comfort.
Several dentists who were surveyed provided responses related to the utility and value of the system:
"With the KODAK 9000 3D system, you know where an implant needs to be placed, and you also know precisely where the nerve and third molar are," said Joey de Graffenried, DDS, of Kilgore, Texas. "The 2D panoramic images are the crispest I've seen and the 3D CBCT images are also excellent."
"The KODAK 9000 3D system is a great tool to evaluate impacted teeth and is also useful in craniofacial patients," said Daniel Levy-Bercowski, DDS, MSD, assistant professor, Orthodontic Department and MCG Craniofacial Center, Medical College of Georgia, Augusta, Ga.
Martin Levin, DMD, of Chevy Chase, Md., commented on the system's ease of use:
"The software is very intuitive. I only needed one hour of training to understand it and use it," he said.
The KODAK 9000 3D system is aimed for dental professionals who regularly
perform complex diagnostic, restorative, surgical, and endodontic procedures. It enables clinicians to view the smallest details from all angles and slices.
The system is marketed in the United States by PracticeWorks Systems, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Carestream Health, Inc., and the exclusive maker of Kodak Dental Systems.
