DoseWatch

DoseWatch™ is a holistic, enterprise-wide dose management solution to track and manage radiation and contrast exposure within the patient workflow across a full-fleet (multi-facility, multi-modality) of imaging environments.

DoseWatch automatically collects and analyzes radiation and contrast dosage data across facilities, modalities, and manufacturers within your imaging network to enable compliance. These automatic tracking capabilities make it easy to access a wide range of data to ensure low dosage strategies.
HOW IT WORKS

DoseWatch automatically detects outliers in dosing data and provides insight into their root causes, while easily documenting these anomalies for review.

  • Using the picture archiving and communication system (PACS) and your medical devices, DoseWatch captures, tracks, and reports radiation and contrast dose across modalities and manufacturers. The following modalities are currently supported on DoseWatch:

    • CT systems
    • Contrast injection systems1
    • Interventional Radiology (IR) systems
    • Cardio-Vascular (CV) systems
    • Mammography systems
    • Radiography systems
    • Surgical/mobile C-arms
    • Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging systems2

Results

DoseWatch 3.1

Drive better-informed, patient-centered care

Delivering high quality patient care is a top priority. Incorporating DoseWatch 3.1 into your imaging practices ensures it stays that way––with state-of-the-art technology that helps clinicians use appropriate radiation levels and deliver better-informed, patient-centered, and effective care.
  • 4D Skin Dose Map3

    DoseWatch 3.1 provides an interactive tool to support the post-procedure review conducted by the interventional imaging physician or medical physicist as they perform their comprehensive assessment of skin injury risk.
  • Organ dose dosimetry technology from Duke University3

    This module estimates organ dosages based on licensed dosimetry technology developed by Duke University. Using the XCAT phantom library of patient models, it gives an absorbed dose estimation based on Duke University’s algorithm.
  • Dose to Fetus

    DoseWatch 3.1 allows clinicians to take a closer look at the impact of radiation on pregnant patients and their babies with the new Dose to Fetus feature. This feature simplifies and standardizes estimates of fetal radiation exposure by automatically incorporating factors like the mother’s measurements and fetal depth.
