Radiation Dose Management

The radiation dose data you need. The analytics you want.

From Multiple Modalities Across the Enterprise.

Empower your enterprise with data and tools for managing radiation dose while benefiting from actionable analytics and compliance support. Radimetrics radiation dose management is combined with contrast dose management in one integrated platform. 

The radiation dose option tracks and flexibly reports cumulative patient radiation data for CT, x-ray, mammography and interventional imaging.

Actionable Analytics. Compliance-Driven Features.


Alerting

  • Set customized patient cumulative and protocol-specific Dose Reference Levels
  • Efficiently monitor quality of patient care with automated alerting for patients and exams exceeding thresholds
  • Monitor scanning technique utilizing alerts for acquisitions acquired outside the scout
  • Support cross-enterprise communication for protocol management committees via alerts for approved protocols and scheduled reviews
  • Run dashboard reports to efficiently identify and investigate exams that exceed established Dose Reference Levels

Benchmarking

  • Demonstrate measured improvements against internal and external benchmarks using customizable analytics
  • Set Dose Reference Levels to trigger alerts for exams exceeding benchmarks
  • Leverage tools to continually improve against ALARA principles
  • Have confidence in partnering with Bayer, a certified ACR DIR software partner

 

 Data Selection Options: Compare exam dose to similarly performed protocols and against set dose reference levels or benchmarks

Productivity and Utilization

  • Review near real-time reporting of enterprise utilization with automated data collection
  • Monitor actual study and acquisition activity of each modality
  • Compare productivity and utilization of equipment and other resources

 

 Data Selection Options: Compare exam dose to similarly performed protocols and against set dose reference levels or benchmarks

Intelligent Reporting

  • Create and view customizable dashboard components including pie-charts, scatterplots and bar graphs
  • Drill down through interactive components from enterprise level dose-to-exam details
  • Use filters to evaluate dose by variables, including: institution, specialty, staff, equipment and protocol
  • Analyze data for specific patient populations using filters for age, gender, weight, BMI, and diameter
  • View dose performance in preferred metrics (ICRP 103 and 60, CTDI, DLP, SSDE)
  • Export data for further analysis
  • Share and schedule dashboard reports for yourself and other users at prescribed time frequencies

 

Reporting Tools:
Drill down, visualize and target dose by facilities, equipment and protocols

 

Protocol Management

  • Access a cross-modality, web-based repository for Master Protocols with built-in revision tracking
  • Build a repository of Master Protocols that include technical factors, general information (including billing codes and patient positioning), contrast details, and images with landmarks
  • Import technical factors from device export to expedite development
  • Support multiple CT devices in a single protocol
  • Set multiple Dose Reference Levels per protocol using preferred dose metrics
  • Use mapping feature to associate examinations with Master Protocols and enable cross-enterprise analysis
  • Receive alerts when a Dose Reference Level is breached, a new protocol is approved, or to advise users of a scheduled review

 

 

 

Analytics & Simulation Tools: Manage on-line repository of revision-tracked protocols across modalities

 

*Actual patient dose information is displayed. In compliance with HIPAA regulations, all identifying patient identifiers have been removed.

Interactive Dosimetry

  • Simulate parameters to evaluate the balance between protocol parameters and estimated dose to the patient
  • View ICRP 103 and ICRP 60 effective dose with weighted equivalent dose to organ
  • Visualize scanning technique, patient positioning, and scanner tube current modulation
  • Visualize the impact to dose as technical parameters like scan length, tube voltage and pitch are adjusted
  • Simulate the technical parameters of the Master Protocol to compare actual examination dose to the expected outcome
  • Educate technologists about the impact of scanning technique on patient dose and simulate protocol parameters before implementing clinically

 

Simulate First: Assess predicted exposure impact of simulated exam parameters and scanning technique before implementing changes in clinical practice

Cumulative Dose Tracking

  • Track ICRP 103 Effective Dose, ICRP 60 Effective Dose, equivalent dose to organ, and DLP
  • Customize display of patient cumulative dose record
  • Review a detailed examination history and dosimetry details across imaging modalities
  • Empower referring and protocoling physicians with dose details and exam histories to make more informed point-of-care decisions
  • View summary of a patient’s system alerts based on exceeded-cumulative and exam thresholds

 

Patient Scorecard: Review patient history with cumulative dose exposure across modalities.

Capturing and Connecting Data

  • Capture data with a direct connection to the PACS and/or the modality
  • Support IHE compliance using integrated HL7 and DICOM standards
  • Maximize dose information available with capture from RDSRs (Radiation Dose Structured Reports), MPPS, and OCR of the dose screen capture image for CT devices
  • Migrate historical data from PACS to build patient history and dose data for setting meaningful Dose Reference Levels (DRLs)
  • Integrate with speech recognition to automate dose reporting and support regulatory compliance.
  • Support simplified integration with ACR/DIR
  • Integrate with EPIC, RIS, EMR
