Brit Systems, Medic Vision Partner to Support SafeCT Systems

May 3, 2012 — Brit Systems Inc. and Medic Vision Imaging Solutions Ltd. jointly announced an agreement for Brit Systems to support the U.S. installations of the SafeCT image enhancement system. SafeCT is a universal iterative image reconstruction add-on product manufactured by Medic Vision that delivers diagnostic image quality to studies acquired over a wide range of exposure parameters on any computed tomography (CT) scanner. Its use allows providers to obtain low-noise, diagnostic-quality CT images for CT studies scanned with low-dose protocols.

Under the agreement, Brit Systems will provide support for the growing SafeCT U.S.-installed base. Medic Vision will continue to provide sales, training and installation.

“SafeCT is an excellent and timely product with huge market potential as more hospitals and imaging practices adopt low-dose protocols for CT scans. We are delighted to work with Medic Vision to provide the same excellent service and support that our customers have come to expect from Brit Systems,” said Shelly Fisher, president, Brit Systems. “This agreement is a validation of Brit’s documentation and ticketing system that tracks issues in the field, as well as our DICOM [digital imaging and communications in medicine] and VPN expertise.”

SafeCT is based on Medic Vision’s proprietary iterative volumetric image reconstruction algorithms and is compatible with four-slice to 256-slice CT systems from major manufacturers. The add-on SafeCT reduces the noise in CT images, protecting existing scanners against obsolescence by eliminating the need for newer systems incorporating such functionality. A single SafeCT can simultaneously serve multiple scanners in different locations. Its use is virtually transparent to department workflow.

“With the rapid growth of SafeCT installations in the [United States] over the last six months, we wanted a reputable company with a proven track record in service and support — and we found that in Brit Systems,” said Eyal Aharon, CEO of Medic Vision. “We’re excited to enter into this agreement with Brit Systems and enable hospitals and imaging centers across the U.S. to reap the benefits of low-dose, high-quality CT with their existing systems.”
