July 22, 2013 — Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc. has partnered with Unfors RaySafe Inc. to offer a new radiation dose monitoring and management tool for Infinix-i cardiovascular X-ray systems. The Unfors RaySafe i2 displays real-time dose exposure information, helping to make exams safer for all clinical staff.
“Real-time display and analysis of individual staff radiation dose is critical to maintaining a safe work environment,” said Bart Leclou, vice president, business area, Unfors RaySafe. “Our partnership with Toshiba will provide their customers with an easy-to-use integrated dose monitoring tool to help clinical staff instantaneously reduce unnecessary radiation exposure.”
With RaySafe i2, each staff member is assigned a digital, real-time dosimeter, which is wirelessly connected to an in-room-mounted screen displaying radiation exposure. The RaySafe i2 system not only helps staff view radiation exposure level during procedures, it also archives dose exposure history for future analysis.
