March 7, 2017 — Unfors RaySafe recently introduced the RaySafe i3, to its suite of real-time dosimetry products, at the European Society of Radiology in Vienna.

The RaySafe Real-Time Dosimetry solution, introduced in 2012, helps physicians and clinical staff visualize X-ray exposure in real time using easy-to-read bar graphs displayed on a monitor. The instant feedback empowers medical staff to adapt their behavior around radiation, to help minimize unnecessary exposure.

“The improvement in radiation protection has been more than dramatic at the URMC. There is no substitute for a constant and real-time reminder of the dose being received,” said Labib H. Syed, M.D., MPH, of University of Rochester Medical Center.
 
The RaySafe i3 is designed to improve wearability, prolong life cycle and increase measurement accuracy. The device can be used in low-dose procedures and in hybrid operating room (OR) environments.

The CT scanner might not come with protocols that are adequate for each hospital situation so at Phoenix Children’s Hospital they designed their own protocols, said Dr. Dianna Bardo, director of body MR and co-director of 3D Innovation Lab at Phoenix Children’s. She said they shared these protocols as part of their partnership with Philips Healthcare.

Systems like this can show cumulative dose to the patient's skin as a reminder to rotate the C-arm to new positions to prevent burns during long procedures. These types of systems also can help track patient dose and the location of that dose to be included as part of their electronic patient record. This data also enables quality assurance assessments.
