If you’re considering upgrading your 2D imaging equipment to advanced dental CBCT, one of the leading brands to add to your research list is Carestream. The Carestream brand has long been an industry leader in the development and manufacturing of dental radiography products.
Carestream offers a wide range of CBCT products, with a variety of field of view (FOV) options as well as desirable features to meet the needs of nearly any clinical application. Today, we’ll explore the average price you can expect to pay for a Carestream CBCT system.
The Average Price of a New Carestream CBCT Unit
When you start your search for dental CBCT, you’ll find that the cost of each machine varies greatly depending on FOV size. Carestream offers a wide range of FOV sizes, from a small FOV (5×5 cm) for endodontic and single implant use to large FOV (17×13.5 cm) for complete maxillofacial exams.
Their large FOV systems include the option to scale or collimate the scan height to capture only the area of interest per the patient’s immediate need. Their systems also provide low-dose imaging options, dedicated traditional 2D panoramic capabilities, and feature-rich treatment planning software.
For a new, small-to-mid FOV Carestream CBCT, the price you can expect to find ranges from $45,000-$60,000. For a mid-to-large FOV Carestream CBCT, your price may range from $60,000-$70,000 depending on your desired features.

HD Resolution Scan
With image resolution up to 75 μm (depending on model and field of view utilized) Carestream cone beam system delivers superior quality 3D scans, providing the detail required for even the most complex dental examinations and treatment plans.
Multiple Fields of View
You can use mid-to-large Carestream CBCT units to capture a variety of different fields of view. For example, the large FOV Carestream CS 9300 Premium can capture up to seven selectable FOV sizes (5×5, 10×5, 8×8, 10×10, 17×6, 17×11, and 17×13.5 cm). This functionality supports the broadest range of dental applications, from single implants to complete maxillofacial exams. Low-dose capture modes provide high-quality scans at doses similar to standard 2D panoramic images for even greater patient safety.
CS 3D Imaging Software
Doctors give favorable reviews on Carestream’s proprietary 3D imaging software. This platform has all the tools you need to quickly capture, analyze, store, retrieve, and share both 2D panoramic and cone beam dental images.
Most Carestream CBCT systems have the option to be purchased with or without a ceph attachment. This additional attachment will have an additional cost to the average price you can expect to pay. If you purchase without a ceph attachment and later need to upgrade, most Carestream CBCT systems can be upgraded by the manufacturer at a later time to include this functionality.
