American Fork, Utah, June 8, 2012 – Novarad’s NovaDose((TM)) solution that calculates cumulative patient, exam and modality ionizing radiation dose history now automatically reports the patient’s exam dose profile from directly into the Nova RIS diagnostic report without dictation or manual entry. This new convenience increases ease of use and saves time.
“We were first to fulfill the need for an integrated PACS, [Radiology Information System] and dose monitoring solution,” said Steve Fowler, product marketing director at Novarad Corporation. “Now with the automated reporting capability through Nova RIS, we are once again making it easier for providers to better manage patient treatments and mitigate risks.”
Novarad introduced radiation dose monitoring integrated with PACS in November and now with the addition of seamless integration with Nova RIS, facilities are assured the most comprehensive feature set, reporting flexibility and ease of use, while completely eliminating the need for a dedicated dose monitoring server at smaller facilities.The radiation dose monitoring engine, DoseMonitor((TM)), was developed by PHS Technologies Group.
NovaDose is available now for NovaPACS sites of all sizes, where ionizing radiation procedures are performed.
