Vendor-neutral Dose software automatically monitors and optimizes patient radiation doses

Qaelum NV and Toyo Corp. Sign Japanese Distribution Agreement for Dose Monitoring Solution

April 10, 2019 —  Qaelum NV of Leuven, Belgium, and Toyo Corp. of Tokyo, Japan announced they have entered into a cooperation agreement for the distribution throughout Japan of Qaelum’s dose monitoring solution — Dose.

Due to the upcoming new regulations to monitor patient radiation dose in Japan and the increased awareness of the risk associated with this radiation, patient safety has become an even higher priority in medical imaging departments throughout Japan.

Dose is a vendor-neutral solution to automatically monitor and optimize patient radiation doses during medical examinations. The software

  • Provides data on dose at the study, patient, device, modality or institution level;

  • Helps ensure compliance with regulations and highlights conformance to guidelines; and

  • Supports radiology best practice and better-informed decisions by physicians.

The agreement allows Qaelum to officially expand into Japan, as well as adding a new product line to the healthcare division of Toyo. This strategic alliance provides support of dose management to hospitals in Japan, allowing them to better optimize their radiation dose and as such improve patient safety.

Dose will be officially launched onto the Japanese market by Toyo at the International Technical Exhibition of Medical Imaging 2019 (ITEM2019), April 13-14 in Yokohama, Japan.
