In a deal that both parties say will create the first digital management portfolio to track both CT radiation and contrast dosage, Bayer HealthCare and Radimetrics, Inc. will co-distribute a radiology workflow solution that addresses both issues. According to a press release that accompanied the announcement, the joint initiative “enables reliable, automated radiation and contrast-dose information administration and provides tools that support patient safety management and regulatory reporting requirements while improving quality assurance.” The reporting mechanism will provide dose tracking and review of several metrics, including CTDIvol, DLP, SSDE, absorbed organ dose and effective dose, as well as providing size-adjusted dose estimates and allowing for the establishment of various alarm thresholds.
