SafeCT: Reviews & Validation

Posted by Vikki Harmonay on Thu, Aug 15, 2013 @ 15:08 PM

SafeCT has been clinically validated at leading medical centers such as University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC, Pittsburgh, PA), Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH, Boston, MA) and Rambam Medical Center (Haifa, Israel). Clinical results have been presented in professional conferences, such as RSNA and ASNR. US FDA clearance and European CE approval were received in 2011. As of May 2013, over 100,000 low-dose CT studies were processed by SafeCT.

SafeCT Validation
In the November 2012 Journal 
(JACR), Drs. John Johnson and Jon Robins of Imaging Healthcare Specialists (IHS) in San Diego stated: “…SafeCT has been successfully deployed at IHS, with a dramatic reduction in radiation dose while maintaining diagnostic image quality… we have concluded that the combination of smart CT protocols and SafeCT iterative reconstruction is a superior method of dose reduction… dose savings of up to 90% have been achieved in select patients.”

According to ECRI 
Institute’s August 2012 Health Devices article, “Optimizing CT Dose”: “SafeCT may offer a more affordable option for facilities looking to provide iterative image reconstruction for a large number of CT scanners, compared to upgrading individual scanners. We highly recommend considering this system for new and existing CT systems that do not already have iterative reconstruction.”
