Samsung Demonstrates Viability of Lower Dose Digital Radiography Algorithm for Pediatric Patients

S-Vue 3.02 image post-processing engine offers greater diagnostic confidence with up to 45 percent dose reduction to improve pediatric patient care

Samsung Demonstrates Viability of Lower Dose Digital Radiography Algorithm for Pediatric Patients

April 24, 2019 — Samsung announced that its new image post-processing engine (IPE), S-Vue 3.02, recently received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance. The technology employs an advanced noise-reduction algorithm that allows devices to produce the same high-quality image using a fraction of the radiation in pediatric patients. Image evaluations on devices using S-Vue showed they reduced X-ray dose up to 45 percent for pediatric abdomen exams,* 15.5 percent for pediatric chest exams, and up to 27 percent for pediatric skull exams as compared with the previous IPE on the same X-ray systems.

Samsung’s digital radiography (DR) machines – including GC85A and GM85 – incorporate S-Vue 3.02, which provides spatially adaptive multi-scale processing and advanced de-noising technology, delivering quality images with a fraction of the dose.

“Findings of our clinical trial showed that use of Samsung’s S-Vue for pediatric chest images resulted in an overall image quality that was uncompromised even at a significantly reduced radiation exposure,” said Susan John, M.D., professor and chair, diagnostic and interventional imaging at McGovern Medical School at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UT Health). “The reduction in radiation dose potentially enables repeat radiographs for better follow-up in patients from infancy into adulthood, while assisting us in confident diagnosis.”

*The claim concerning Samsung DR is based on limited phantom and clinical study results. Only routine PA chest radiography and abdominal radiography for average adults and pediatric abdominal, chest, skull radiography were studied, excluding pediatric patients under 1 month old.

New recommendations will help provide more reliable, reproducible results for MRI-based measurements of cartilage degeneration in the knee, helping to slow down disease and prevent progression to irreversible osteoarthritis, according to a special report published in the journal Radiology

Knee cartilage compartments with anatomic labels implemented in lateral (left side), central (middle), and medial (right side) MRI obtained with an intermediate weighted fat-saturated fast-spin-echo sequence (top row) and a spin-lattice relaxation time constant in rotating frame (T1r) magnetization-prepared angle-modulated partitioned k-space spoiled gradient echo snapshots sequence (bottom row, T1r maps). Study was performed without administration of intravenous gadolinium-based contrast material. The lateral femur (LF)/medial femur (MF) and lateral tibia (LT)/medial tibia (MT) can be further divided into subcompartments on the basis of meniscus anatomy according to Eckstein et al.
