Intelligent technology designed to help you acquire high-quality images using lower doses of radiation, contributing to more accurate diagnoses and lower exposures for patients.
Smart Dose technologies include:
kV Assist - tailored protocols for each patient, clinical indication and each scan area.
ASiR* - the industry’s first iterative reconstruction product with an estimated 30 million patients imaged since 20082.
Veo* - the world’s first model-based, iterative reconstruction product providing imaging under 1mSv with profound clarity2. Available as an option on Discovery* CT750 HD.
3D Dose Modulation utilizing SmartmA automatic dose modulation and AutomA - allows you to personalize protocols and optimize dose for every patient – large and small.
Dose Reporting - provides access to the CTDIvol and DLP with the patient record prior and post exam. DICOM Structured Dose Report is also supported.
Dose Check – provides prospective dose alerts and warnings if pre-determined dose levels will be exceeded.
CT 4Kids - Dose-optimized, procedure based protocols for pediatric imaging provide more options for ensuring balanced radiation dose and image quality for specific pediatric applications.
1. Not all Smart Technologies are available on all products. Ask a GE Healthcare sales representative for details.
2. In clinical practice, the use of ASiR and Veo may reduce CT patient dose depending on the clinical task, patient size, anatomical location and clinical practice. A consultation with a radiologist and a physicist should be made to determine the appropriate dose to obtain diagnostic image quality for the particular clinical task.
