WAUKESHA — GE Healthcare announced its new introductory dose management solution DoseWatch Explore on Tuesday that will track, analyze and report practice-level radiation dose data for GE computed tomography systems.

DoseWatch Explore is available on select GE CT systems in the U.S. It is a web-based, cloud deployed, dose management software that tracks, analyzes and reports practice-level radiation dose data for GE CT systems. According to the announcement, the solution will help clinicians quantify GE CT systems’ practice-level radiation dose using protocol parameters per exam per device, and enables clinicians to develop dose management practices while improving patient radiation dose levels during diagnostic imaging procedures, like CT scans.

“Patient safety is at the heart of dose management and is a big driver for why we created this solution,“ said Agnes Berzsenyi, vice president and general manager of product management for Global Services at GE Healthcare. “For health care 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.“
