Dose Reduction for CT Scans

CT scans have led to significant improvements in both the diagnosis and treatment of many medical conditions. Despite the numerous benefits, risks are also inevitable and do give some cause for concern. Our Dose Reduction Solution addresses some of the risks associated with radiation exposure from CT scans, without compromising diagnostic quality.

CT Scans

CT scans have led to significant improvements in both the diagnosis and treatment of many medical conditions.  Despite the numerous benefits of CT scans, risks are also inevitable and do give some cause for concern. 

Studies show that the more radiation patients are exposed to while undergoing imaging exams, the greater their risk of developing cancer at some point in their lives.  The safety and effects of radiation on pediatric, obese and female patients, as well as the clinical staff, are also of particular concern.  As a result of these concerns, the FDA is now leading an initiative to reduce radiation exposure from CT scans.  While the FDA cites a need for better training of clinical staff, support for better decision-making and an increase in patient awareness, there is an additional safety measure that can significantly reduce exposure to unnecessary radiation.

With our Dose Reduction Solution, we are helping the medical community address some of the risks associated with radiation exposure from CT scans.  This solution uses new optimization technology to reduce unnecessary radiation exposure by 20 percent to 80 percent—without impacting diagnostic quality.  The solution also provides image quality enhancement for greater diagnostic confidence and enables radiologists to lower radiation dose exposures during image acquisition.  

This easy to install program will not make changes to your current process, or imaging equipment, and works for all CT systems.  Our exclusive pricing on this solution means it costs a fraction of what competitor systems cost and will fit in your budget.  To learn more about Dose Reduction and to find out how it can benefit your organization, patients and staff, send an e-mail to info@pinnaclesystems.us, or call us at 251-342-0713.
