SafeCT-29 is also the only 3 rd party XR-29 solution that can ensure that healthcare facilities avoid rising non-compliance penalties. "Conference participants get to see first-hand how SafeCT-29 can meet the needs of their facility without the costly investment required to replace existing scanners," said Eyal Aharon, CEO, Medic Vision. "Eliminating the need to replace thousands of fully-operational scanners while meeting compliance requirements and improving patient care, is a smart decision for the healthcare industry." SafeCT-29 is an innovative, add-on system that is easy to install and operate. It is fully automatic and enables the technologist to maintain his or her existing workflow. SafeCT-29 connects to the CT console, analyzes dose data in real time, alerts the operator if the dose is too high, and prevents the patient scan until dose levels are changed or confirmed and justified. After the scan, SafeCT-29 generates Radiation Dose Structured Reports (RDSRs), as required by the XR-29 standard.
