December 31, 2014 — Medic Vision Imaging Solutions, Ltd. and Nationwide Imaging Services, Inc. announced a new agreement for the global distribution of Medic Vision’s SafeCT, a universal 3-D image reconstruction system that enables substantial signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) enhancement of CT images acquired with low-dose protocols on conventional scanners. The agreement will strengthen worldwide distribution of SafeCT to hospitals, imaging centers, clinics and radiology practices utilizing CT systems that do not have manufacturer-supported low-dose capabilities and will allow Nationwide Imaging to offer cost-effective CT scanners that are capable of performing low-dose scans.

Awareness of lowering patient exposure to ionizing radiation from CT has gained global attention. While not currently mandated by government regulatory agencies, organizations are in the process of revising standards that address dose management, monitoring and reporting. 

“Facilities across the world want low-dose capabilities for their CT scanner, yet in many instances dose management tools are not available from the original equipment manufacturers for a variety of reasons, including being cost prohibitive,” says Robert Manetta, CEO, Nationwide Imaging Services, Inc.

Nationwide will include SafeCT as part of their offering for all CT system sales.
