Philips Announces DoseWise Portal 2.0 at RSNA 2015

Second version of dose management solution focuses on interventional radiology, staff exposure data

December 1, 2015 — Philips  introduced the DoseWise Portal 2.0, a comprehensive radiation dose management software solution aimed at managing radiation exposure risk to patients and clinicians. The software solution allows healthcare providers to record, collect and analyze imaging radiation exposure so they can make data-driven decisions to manage dose, and ultimately, ensure patient and staff well-being.

With this year's Joint Commission standards requiring healthcare providers to monitor and utilize patient radiation doses, clinicians are under increased scrutiny to ensure proper exam ordering. Providers also realize the need for accurate dose management for their staff, and are identifying ways to protect them from scattered radiation that occurs during interventional procedures.

Updates to the DoseWise Portal 2.0 feature an enhanced dashboard for viewing patient data that introduces a peak skin dose reporting feature to help manage patients undergoing complex fluoroscopy procedures. During fluoroscopy procedures, surgeons use high levels of radiation so they can guide insertions within the body, producing highly localized radiation dose levels on the skin at the entry point, which can be a health risk. DoseWise Portal 2.0 alerts healthcare providers when excessive levels are reached that require follow-up.

The solution also further integrates with DoseAware Xtend for staff exposure data, enabling providers to ensure their staff is protected from high levels of radiation.  Interventional radiologists receive the highest amount of radiation dose in the hospital, often nearing annual exposure limits. The DoseAware integration combines staff and patient dose data together in the user interface, helping physicians manage their radiation exposure in real time.

Philips is showcasing DoseWise Portal 2.0 at the 2015 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting, Nov. 29-Dec. 4 in Chicago.
