March 18, 2015 — SST Group Inc. announced a partnership with MPTronic to become the exclusive distributor in the United States and Canada for MPTronic's RDM (Radiation Dosage Monitor). The RDM solution is designed to collect, control, analyze and optimize radiation doses delivered to patients during medical imaging examinations. RDM is compatible with various types of imaging modalities from all manufacturers. The RDM utilizes DACS (Dose Archive and Communication System) to store and manage radiation dose data for patient's current and historical procedures and provides medical professionals complete control of the dose.

Thanks to its intuitive browser-based user interface, multiple control screens can be deployed without additional cost. The RDM allows the medical professional to stay in control at all times, providing instant access to a patient's dose history and real-time monitoring and alerts.

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.
