December 15, 2011 – Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc. has added two new enhancements to the Radrex-I digital radiographic (DR) X-ray system. The system now features DICOM Radiation Dose Structured Reporting and Reject Analysis software.
The DICOM feature automatically records radiation dose information for every X-ray exam, making it easier for hospitals to document, manage and evaluate overall dose usage. The report is in compliance with the Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise Radiation Exposure Monitoring (IHE REM) profile. The level and detail of dose reporting exceed what is required today from leading medical imaging organizations.
The Reject Analysis software documents accepted and rejected exposures. This allows radiology departments to view technologists’ technique and performance, reasons for rejecting an image and the number of repeat images. This information can be used by radiology departments to identify rejection rates and improve techniques to enhance workflow, quality assurance and patient safety.
Toshiba will feature the Radrex-i DR System with the DICOM Radiation Dose Structured Reporting and Reject Analysis features at RSNA 2011.
