August 16, 2016 – RadNet Inc. and Medic Vision Imaging Solutions Ltd. announced in July that RadNet has selected Medic Vision’s SafeCT product suite to enable compliance with low-dose computed tomography (CT) scanning and XR-29 regulations.

RadNet was seeking a solution to comply with Smart Dose regulations without the expense of buying new scanners. After researching the market and evaluating several options, RadNet determined that Medic Vision offers the best solution that delivers both quality and cost effectiveness.

“This upgrade to our existing scanners with SafeCT Enterprise and SafeCT-29 from Medic Vision allows us to optimize patient safety while complying with regulations and staying within budget constraints,” said Howard Berger, M.D., president and chief executive officer of RadNet. “Medic Vision’s products enable us to comply with new dose regulations with our existing scanners and, in the process, alleviate the need for us to replace a portion of our CT fleet. These Medic Visions products are FDA [U.S. Food and Drug Administration]-cleared, giving us reassurance that we are complying with mandated government regulations.”

SafeCT Enterprise allows enterprise-wide low-dose scanning for organizations such as RadNet with a large number of CT scanners. SafeCT Enterprise consists of a cluster of SafeCT servers working together to deliver top-notch diagnostic quality to CT studies acquired with low-dose protocols on any number of existing scanners in multiple locations on a network.

SafeCT-29 is a patent-pending add-on system that helps achieve compliance with the XR-29 Standard for CT and positron emission tomography (PET)/CT systems of all vendors and models. According to Medic Vision, it is the only FDA-cleared third-party solution that offers XR-29 functionality.
