Relationship between dual energy subtraction and better operational and financial outcomes is presented at AHRA

July 6, 2022 — A study from KA Imaging’s CTO Dr. Karim S. Karim about the benefits of dual energy subtraction will be presented at this year’s AHRA meeting, which will be held in Phoenix (AZ) from July 10 to July 13. Karim is one of the featured speakers with the educational session “Improving Department Results with Dual-Energy Subtraction X-Ray: Operational and Financial Benefits.” 

In the session, Dr. Karim outlines the science behind the technology, as well as its clinical benefits for a variety of conditions including lung nodules, pneumonia, coronary calcifications, tuberculosis, pneumothorax, tips of lines and tubes, and foreign objects. 

Through an economic healthcare calculation, Dr. Karim delves into how a mid-sized community hospital could benefit from the implementation of Single Exposure Dual-Energy X-ray. Among projected additional billings, cost savings due to non-reimbursed procedures, and potential malpractice costs avoided, the dollar count can run into millions of dollars. 

“Single Exposure Dual Energy enables new opportunities for X-ray imaging, as it provides more confident and accurate image interpretation,” says Karim. “It saves time and benefits patients in Radiology, Emergency and Critical Care departments with no additional procedure or dose, as it leverages existing X-ray equipment and clinical techniques,” he continues. 

The Association for Medical Imaging Management (AHRA) is the professional organization representing management at all levels of hospital imaging departments, freestanding imaging centers, and group practices. The organization’s annual meeting has been held for 50 years. KA Imaging will also be part of the technical exhibition at booth 208. 

Recently, KA Imaging announced that its patented single-exposure mobile dual-energy technology is now branded SpectralDR. The SpectralDR technology enables dual-energy subtraction, providing bone and tissue differentiation with a single standard X-ray exposure. It acquires three images simultaneously (DR, bone and soft tissue dual-energy X-ray images). The technology mimics the workflow, dose and techniques of state-of-the-art mobile DR X-ray detectors.
