Additional tests for athletes were conducted at Indiana University Health Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis.
NFL coaches, general managers and scouts who are preparing to draft new players evaluated more than 300 prospects at the Combine.
Multiple NFL teams—and other sports organizations worldwide—are using Carestream’s advanced digital medical imaging products to diagnose player injuries. The newest addition to Carestream’s portfolio is a cone beam CT (CBCT) imaging system that produces images for use in diagnosing conditions and injuries for professional athletes and recreational sports enthusiasts.
The CARESTREAM OnSight 3D Extremity System equips sports medicine and orthopaedic specialists to capture 3D and weight-bearing images of hands, wrists, elbows, knees, feet and ankles, which provide important diagnostic information that is not available from traditional CT systems and other types of extremity exams.
"We worked closely with leading orthopaedic specialists, sports medicine physicians and athletic trainers to develop a compact, affordable 3D imaging system for use in treating a variety of orthopaedic injuries and conditions,” said Jianqing Bennett, President, Digital Medical Solutions, Carestream.
