Carestream Health, Inc., introduced the new CS 1200 intraoral camera with an image resolution of 1024 x 768, a video resolution of 640 x 480 and a focus range of 3mm-25mm. This device can provide clear views of all anatomical structures in your patient’s mouth. Small details like cracks and caries can be made visible to you and your patients in real time. A one-click image capture button makes it easy to acquire high-quality stills and videos. Up to 300 images can be stored on the device itself and connections to a computer or analog displays can be made with USB, AV, and S‐video. Lighting conditions are regulated by 6 white LED lights that automatically adjust to offer a clear uniformly lit image.
Other more advanced versions of intraoral cameras from Carestream are also available, they include the CS 1500 and CS 1600. The CS 1500 camera is available in both a wired and wireless version and designed for mobility. True autofocus and an intuitive camera lighting system consisting of 8 LEDs make sure no manual adjustments need to made.
The CS 1600 is equipped with the “Fluorescence Imaging with Reflectance Enhancement” (FIRE) technology. Under violet-blue illumination, teeth naturally emit yellow-green fluorescence. This emitted fluorescence decreases in demineralized tooth regions. The FIRE technology can determine the degree of fluorescence loss of suspected lesions.
