GE Healthcare has launched new introductory dose management solution, DoseWatch Explore, which can be used on select GE computed tomography (CT) systems.
DoseWatch Explore is a web-based, cloud deployed and dose management software, which tracks, analyzes and reports practice-level radiation dose data for GE CT systems.
GE Healthcare product management for global services vice-president and general manager Agnes Berzsenyi said: "For healthcare clinicians interested in managing radiation dose for CT, DoseWatch Explore is a perfect entry-level dose management solution that harnesses the power of data, analytics, and software to help clinicians achieve optimal dose levels and provide better patient care."
DoseWatch Explore is said to collect radiation data directly from a GE CT scanner by using Microsoft’s cloud technology Microsoft Azure and GE’s InSite connection.
The new dose management solution has been developed for clinicians to discover dose levels across their practice with no additional information technology (IT) integration, infrastructure or installation required, a main difference compared to GE Healthcare’s core dose management solution, DoseWatch.
