August 11, 2016 — Richardson Healthcare recently announced the addition of Medic Vision Imaging Solutions’ SafeCT-29 that helps achieve XR-29 compliance to its diagnostic imaging product portfolio. This solution allows hospitals and imaging facilities to avoid facing reimbursement penalties or investing in new equipment, ultimately saving significant costs.

Medic Vision specializes in image enhancement and computed tomography (CT) radiation management solutions. The SafeCT-29 solution offers Richardson Healthcare customers the only non-OEM solution to comply with XR-29 that is cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). SafeCT-29 meets the guidelines required by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) in the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) XR-29 Smart Dose standard for CT imaging equipment.

SafeCT-29 is vendor-neutral, and seamlessly integrates with the CT scanner’s existing configuration. The product uses the system’s own software to prevent scanning when assigned dosage exceeds per-patient targets. Installation is completed within hours, requires minimal workflow interruption and is cost-effective compared to other solutions on the market.
