Philips, RaySafe Develop Next generation DoseAware System for Angiography

January 2, 2013 — Philips Royal Electronics and Unfors RaySafe AB announced the signing of a Joint Development Agreement that will see the development of the next generation Philips DoseAware system, with the aim of offering seamless access and communication between Philips DoseAware and Philips Allura interventional X-ray systems.

“With the launch of DoseAware in 2010, and the introduction of real-time dosimetry, together with Philips we were able to establish a new gold standard for the management of dose in the interventional X-ray environment. Through this new agreement, we aim to make further significant advances by integrating real-time dosimetry within the interventional X-ray system itself, which has the potential to further improve radiation dose management for those performing and managing these complex procedures,” commented Magnus Kristoferson, chief executive officer of Unfors RaySafe AB.

The Philips Allura Xper system offers customers exceptional image quality and deeper insight for diagnosing and treating cardiac disease. Through this new collaboration, Philips and RaySafe are committing to developing an Allura X-ray environment with an integrated real-time dosimetry solution, providing staff with improved, personalized and directly accessible dose information.

Philips DoseAware provides instant, time-stamped feedback in the examination room so you can immediately adjust your working habits to decrease radiation exposure. You see when and where radiation dose was acquired on your personal dose meter so you can take the appropriate action during a procedure. You can easily check your exposure level with one glance at the colored display in the examination room, and even have the option to e-mail a full radiation dose report at the end of each examination.
