May 31, 2016 — Medic Vision Imaging Solutions Ltd. announced the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance of SafeCT-29 to help healthcare facilities achieve compliance as mandated by NEMA XR-29 Smart Dose standard.

SafeCT-29 provides full compliance with the XR-29 Dose Check function for computed tomography (CT) and positron emission tomography (PET)/CT systems of all vendors and models. According to Medic Vision, it is the only third-party solution that offers Dose Check functionality without interrupting or interfering with the scanner’s design and operation.

The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) estimates that one-third of the current CT installation base may not be retrofitted by the OEMs to become XR-29 compliant. Now there is an alternative solution that can make the four-slice, eight-slice and some 16-slice CT scanners, as well as the majority of PET/CT scanners, compliant.

SafeCT-29 is a patent-pending add-on system that is easy to install and operate. It is fully automatic and maintains the scanner’s workflow. It 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.

SafeCT-29 does not provide all XR-29 features.
