SafeCT Affordably Delivers Diagnostic Quality CT Images Using Iterative Image Reconstruction
Yonkers, NY and Tirat Carmel, Israel (June 25, 2012) – Atlantis Worldwide, LLC and Medic Vision Imaging Solutions Ltd. have joined forces to provide U.S. hospitals and clinics with the capability to produce high quality diagnostic CT images from low-dose scans acquired on existing CT scanners by top manufacturers. Medic Vision, a leading producer of iterative image reconstruction solutions for medical imaging, has selected Atlantis Worldwide, a leading full-service provider of diagnostic imaging systems, as its exclusive partner to distribute the SafeCT™ CT image-enhancement system to hospitals and imaging centers throughout the United States.
“We are excited to offer an affordable way for hospitals and imaging centers to use low-dose protocols without compromising quality,” said Atlantis Worldwide CEO Jeff Weiss. “SafeCT provides our customers with an add-on system that will deliver enhanced image quality from low-dose scans without having to replace their equipment. It’s a great alternative to what OEMs offer radiology practices.” He continued, “Coincidentally, SafeCT is quite timely considering the growing concern over medical imaging radiation in the medical community and the public at large.”
SafeCT is a ready, universal add-on solution for CT scanners manufactured by GE, Siemens, Toshiba and Philips. Based on unique proprietary, patented image reconstruction technology and sophisticated volumetric algorithms, SafeCT delivers the diagnostic quality images that radiologists require. A single SafeCT system provides robust SNR-enhanced imaging functionality to multiple CT scanners from different manufacturers starting with four-slice and higher CT scanners.
“Our partnership with Atlantis Worldwide ensures that SafeCT is broadly available and that diagnostic quality images from low-dose CT scans are a viable option for medical imaging practices across the United States, regardless of size or budget,” said Medic Vision CEO Eyal Aharon.
SafeCT has been clinically validated at leading medical centers in Israel and the U.S. Since its FDA clearance, it has delivered high quality diagnostic images for more than 20,000 patients scanned with low dose CT protocols in the U.S. “The processed images rival or surpass those processed by proprietary iterative image reconstruction solutions available from major CT manufacturers on their top-tier CT models,” added Aharon.
