St. Joseph’s/Candler Health System Increases Patient Safety using Medic Vision SafeCT® at all facilities
Medic Vision Imaging Solutions, Ltd., the leading innovator of vendor-independent image enhancement solutions for low-dose CT exams, announced today the installation of SafeCT® at St. Joseph’s/Candler Health System, Savannah, Georgia. The health care system’s two hospitals and three outpatient facilities are all served by a centralized SafeCT® Enterprise system.
“With Medic Vision SafeCT® the St. Joseph’s/Candler Health System has reduced our radiation dose on our legacy scanners – from a range of manufacturers - while presenting images to our radiologists and physician community that are of the high diagnostic quality they demand.” said Jeffrey Zehel, Director of Imaging Services at St. Joseph's/Candler Health System.
SafeCT®, Medic Vision's flagship product, enables substantial SNR (Signal-to-Noise Ratio) enhancement of CT images acquired on conventional scanners of all vendors and models, regardless of exposure parameters. SafeCT® Enterprise is a centralized system that helps achieve low-dose CT scanning for the entire organization, regardless of the number of scanners and their locations. It demonstrates high performance, continuity, reliability and scalability along with seamless integration into the CT department workflow.
St. Joseph's/Candler Health System has eight CT scanners of various vintage, ranging from 16 to 128 slice systems in three outpatient facilities and two hospitals. The scanners are from GE, Siemens and Hitachi.
“Patients now receive significant lower dose levels for the same exams we performed just months ago and it has opened our eyes to the possibilities of further radiation dose reduction for our patients,” Zehel said.
“The experience Medic Vision has in the industry, working with large well-known facilities, is an assurance to current and new customers that they can count on us to not only meet their needs but to do so seamlessly and cost effectively,” said Medic Vision’s CEO Eyal Aharon. We continue to astonish our customers with the ultra-low dose levels they achieve, the seamless implementation and our top-level customer support.”
