Better management of X-ray radiation doses starts with recording and tracking each exposure patients receive. Dose tracking has come to the forefront of medicine in recent years with the realization that medical imaging has doubled the public’s exposure to ionizing radiation since the 1980s, largely due to the rapid expansion of computed tomography (CT) and minimally invasive procedures guided by angiography.
At RSNA 2012 Montage Healthcare Solutions and Radimetrics demonstrated the benefits of correlating dose information with Montage clinical report search results.
June 20, 2012 — Nuance Communications Inc. and Radimetrics announced the integration of their technologies, which together will help radiologists to monitor and report on patient exposure to imaging-related radiation.
