“Delivering diagnostic image quality at the lowest possible dose is not only the standard set forth by MITA, it is the tenet of our CT portfolio,” said Ken Denison, CT Dose Leader for GE Healthcare. “What’s great about MITA’s standard is that customers can see that our technology and our innovation align closely with industry guidelines. Our own strict guidelines on reducing dose while actually enhancing image quality is why we are a global leader in CT dose management today.”

The MITA standard is made up of four key CT equipment features that enable optimization of radiation dose delivery without compromising the quality of images necessary for an accurate diagnosis automatic exposure control, pediatric and adult reference protocols, dose check, and DICOM dose structured reporting.

Below are some recent examples of GE Healthcare’s activity related to MITA’s standard:

Pediatric and Adult Dose-optimized Protocols: Late last year, GE announced a first-of-its-kind agreement with the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health with the purpose of developing protocols to provide physicians with more tools to help optimize radiation dose, acquire clinically-useful images, and potentially reduce the frequency of repeat Computed Tomography (CT) scans. Clinical professionals at the UW School of Medicine and Public Health, a recognized leader in lower-dose CT imaging, will develop a suite of protocols, which will be regularly updated and improved, and GE Healthcare will offer them along with our reference protocols, to better serve our customers.

Dose Check and DICOM Dose Structured Reporting: GE’s commitment to its users extends beyond what it is shipping today. GE is making Dose Check and DICOM Dose Structured Reporting available to over 50 percent of the installed base of GE CT scanners through a no-charge update.

GE Blueprint Benchmark: As part of GE’s first-of-its-kind Blueprint initiative, GE Healthcare supports healthcare providers’ goals of a comprehensive, programmatic approach to radiation dose management. The Blueprint Benchmark can help a healthcare provider understand the strengths and opportunities within its CT imaging program as compared to industry guidelines and best and better practices. Based on information provided by the healthcare provider, GE’s Low Dose Architects provide a report that can serve as a “blueprint” for the healthcare provider as it works to put in place the people, processes and technology to define and enhance their radiation dose management goals. DoseWatch*, a multi-modality dose tracking and reporting tool, is a key element of this program.
