July 13, 2015 - PHS Technologies Group LLC, a division of PACSHealth LLC, announced that it will integrate VirtualDose CT (computed tomography) software from Virtual Phantoms Inc. into their DoseMonitor product.

DoseMonitor is a single-server, browser-based software application that automates radiation dose data collection and reporting. It fully integrates into a radiology information system (RIS), electronic medical record (EMR) and the American College of Radiology's Dose Index Registry, helping to eliminate time-consuming manual steps and reducing input errors. Facilities can accurately depict historical exposure and compare, aggregate and interpret data from ionizing radiation sources for an individual patient, exam or between diagnostic modalities in multiple facilities.

VirtualDose CT is sophisticated radiation dose simulation software constructed with a well-tested family of anatomically correct phantoms, advanced GPU-based Monte Carlo simulation, and innovative software-as-a-service (SaaS) programming techniques that were developed from more than a decade of research. It enables users to accurately compute doses to radiosensitive organs for a broad range of the patient population, including those outside the "average" body size, and pediatric patients from newborn through adolescence. It includes data for the latest CT scanners and the most current risk coefficients for computation of effective dose.

DoseMonitor's capabilities include:

  • Automated data collection for CT, mammography (MG), digital radiography (DR), interventional radiography (XA), and cardiac angiography;
  • Advanced report generation, including cumulative organ dose, dose by technologist by procedure, dose by physician by procedure, mammography reporting (organ and mean glandular dose), and age range support for alerts and notifications;
  • Intelligent patient search - by name, partial name, medical record and/or accession number;
  • Compatibility with VMware-based implementations, enabling hospitals to "virtualize" hardware on existing servers, reducing the need for new hardware and decreasing the total IT effort required to implement the solution; and
  • Support for direct data exchange with Nuance's Powerscribe 360 | Reporting that places the dose index data directly into the interpretive report.
