Carestream Health Receives Contract From Vizient Inc.

Carestream Health has received an Innovative Technology contract from Vizient Inc., for its Carestream OnSight 3D Extremity System. Vizient is the largest member-driven health care performance improvement company in the country. The contract was based on a recommendation of hospital experts who serve on one of Vizient’s member-led councils. Innovative Technology contracts are reserved for technologies that demonstrate an ability to enhance clinical care or patient safety, and those that improve an organization’s care delivery and business model.

The OnSight 3D Extremity System performs high-quality, low-dose 3D extremity exams using cone beam CT (CBCT) technology. In addition to being compact and easy to install, it captures high-quality 3D images including weight-bearing exams of lower extremities under normal load conditions. Unlike traditional CT systems, the CBCT system has a large-area detector that can capture a 3D image of the patient in a single rotation, which takes 25 seconds.

“This three-year contract will allow Vizient members the ability to streamline workflow and productivity by capturing onsite 3D exams, making a diagnosis and discussing treatment options with patients in a single visit,” said Helen Titus, Carestream’s worldwide marketing director for X-ray and ultrasound solutions. “This workflow is also more convenient for patients and can result in faster diagnosis and treatment.”
