CS Airway module aids in airway analysis using CS 3D Imaging software

The new CS Airway module is Carestream Dental's latest enhancement for its CS 3D Imaging software. This advanced tool aids general practitioners, orthodontists and other specialists in quickly analysing the airway in 3D for clearer visualisation, faster analysis and enhanced communication with patients.


The CS Airway module gives doctors a color-coded 3D view of the pharyngeal region to help them visualise constrictions in airway passages. Doctors can customise the colour scale with their preferred threshold to suit their individual needs. Colour coding is also valuable in patient education. Coloured 3D renderings allow doctors to easily communicate with patients by showing before-and-after treatment volumes. Additionally, images can be easily shared with referrals and patients.

The module further enhances airway analysis by providing segmentation in as few as two clicks. CS Airway can also automatically calculate total volume, minimum cross-sectional area, minimum Anterior-Posterior and Left-Right measurements. These measurement values are displayed in real time as the user browses the slice or changes the angulations of the view.

CS Airway is an optional module for CS 3D Imaging and is compatible with CS 9300 and CS 9300 Select volumes. The CS 9300 features Low Dose mode, which can capture images at a dose lower or equal than 2D panoramic imaging,1 making it ideally suited for airway exams.

Ludlow, University of North Carolina, School of Dentistry, June 2011, measuring the CS 9300 doses and comparing them to panoramic exams dose.
