March 24, 2017 — Medsquare announced the integration of the organ dose module VirtualDose CT into its DACS (dose archive and communication system) Radiation Dose Monitor (RDM) solution. Developed in partnership with Virtual Phantoms Inc., this new module will be added to RDM’s existing features. It was presented for the first time at the European Congress of Radiology (ECR), March 1-5 in Vienna, Austria.
The features of the organ dose module are the following:
- Monte Carlo algorithm calculation of mean doses delivered to organs by type of activity using existing dose data (dose length product [DLP], computed tomography dose index [CTDI], etc.);
- Estimation of the dose received by the fetus from the different stages of gestation of the pregnant woman;
- Several parameters are considered: weight, height, age, pregnancy stages of the pregnant woman, etc.; and
- Calculation in accordance with ICRP- 60 and ICRP-103 recommendations.
