Numa Debuts Radiation Dose Reporting with Patient Status for Nuclear Medicine

Web-based application that provides real-time patient status updates during a procedure that are instantly communicated to all users

Numa, NumaStatus, radiation dose reporting software, RSNA 2016

December 8, 2016 — Numa introduced a new software application at the 2016 Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA 2016) for recording and sharing patient radiation dose in nuclear medicine and positron emission tomography (PET) departments.

NumaStatus allows users to easily create DICOM-compliant patient radiation dose reports from anywhere in the facility. The application interfaces with dose calibrators and radiology information systems (RIS) to create DICOM structured reports (SR) and Secondary Capture (SC) files that can be shared with the modality, dose management systems, picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) and electronic medical records (EMR). NumaStatus is a web based application that supports desktop and mobile devices. Real-time updates of the patient’s status during the scheduled procedure are instantly communicated to all users.

Accurate patient dose is imperative in providing optimum diagnostic information for the reading physicians. The modality and image processing applications require precise dose information to calculate quantitative imaging statistics such as standardized uptake values (SUVs) used in the diagnosis of disease. NumaStatus electronically communicates this information and helps reduce errors.

Dose management systems can use the information in the reports record of a patient’s overall exposure to radiation and create statistics to manage the department.

NumaStatus adds an additional layer of safety by providing the user with the patient demographics, requested protocol and radiopharmaceutical at the location and time of administration.

NumaStatus improves quality, safety and efficiency by providing a method to enter and view the valuable dose and patient information from anywhere in the facility.
