Sectra Wins Memorial Hermann Enterprise Radiation Dose Monitoring Contract

Sectra radiation dose monitoring software can help manage radiation dose from multiple medical imaging modalities.

July 25, 2018 – Sectra will install its cloud-based, radiation dose monitoring software, Sectra DoseTrack, throughout Memorial Hermann Health System. The software will enable increased patient safety by detecting patients’ radiation exposure, ensure compliance with regulatory requirements and standardize all radiation dose data throughout the enterprise.

The multi-year agreement will include dose monitoring services for sixteen hospitals and 17 imaging centers in the health network. As one of the largest not-for-profit health systems in Southwest Texas, Memorial Hermann provides patient care services throughout the greater Houston area.

Sectra DoseTrack gathers and reports dose data from all sources within the imaging department. Robust analysis capabilities for dose optimization assist in the identification of needed actions such as changing modalities for specific procedures, staff training or imaging protocol revisions. Consideration of patient size and demographics allow for effective organ dose calculations and patient risk assessment.
