Nov. 6, 2013 – Tirat Carmel, Israel – Medic Vision Imaging Solutions, Ltd. (www.medicvision.com) announced today that it has recently signed agreements with two major healthcare purchasing organizations, namely, Premier and Health Trust PG, offering the SafeCT to thousands of their member hospitals and other healthcare providers at pre-negotiated special terms. Medic Vision was independently selected by each of the purchasing organizations as a preferred supplier of a vendor-neutral image enhancement solution for low-dose CT scanning.
“We are honored to have been selected by such prominent group purchasing organizations as Premier and Health Trust” stated Eyal Aharon, CEO of Medic Vision. “Our strategic alliances with these organizations are expected to expand the use of SafeCT to hundreds of new healthcare facilities each year, enabling them to offer improved patient care by providing diagnostic-quality images for CT scans acquired with low radiation protocols. Being a network-central system, SafeCT can be remarkably cost-effective, with cost per CT scanner at only a fraction of the price of alternative solutions.”
Using proprietary, patented 3D iterative image reconstruction algorithms, the add-on SafeCT has already delivered high-quality images for way over 100,000 patients who have undergone low-dose CT scans, eliminating the need to upgrade existing CT systems with costly OEM solutions.

SafeCT is available in Standard Edition for small hospitals and practices and in Enterprise Edition for larger organizations with multiple CT scanners and sites.
