October 12, 2016 — GE Healthcare will display its introductory dose management solution, DoseWatch Explore, at the 2016 annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), Nov. 27-Dec. 3 in Chicago. DoseWatch Explore is a Web-based, cloud-deployed, dose management software that tracks, analyzes and reports practice-level radiation dose data for GE computed tomography (CT) systems.

Using Microsoft's cloud technology, Microsoft Azure, and GE's InSite connection, DoseWatch Explore collects radiation data directly from a GE CT scanner. The dose management solution helps clinicians quantify GE CT systems' practice-level radiation dose using protocol parameters per exam per device, and enables clinicians to develop dose management practices while improving patient radiation dose levels during diagnostic imaging procedures, like CT scans. The solution offers clinicians a new level of data analysis, utilizing familiar, browser-based tools and technology with the scale, cost-efficiency and ease-of-deployment provided by cloud infrastructure.

DoseWatch Explore also addresses a growing interest in the healthcare industry. Regulatory and accreditation requirements for medical radiation are emerging in the U.S., but implementing dose management practices and gaining visibility to dose data are still relatively new to clinicians. Thus, healthcare providers are searching for the opportunity to test dose management without compromising image quality. DoseWatch Explore was created to provide clinicians with a first step toward discovering dose levels across their practice with no additional information technology (IT) integration, infrastructure or installation required — a key differentiator from GE Healthcare's core dose management solution, DoseWatch.
