Sapheneia Implements Clarity CT Dose Reduction And Image Optimization Solution In Six Premier Radiology Centers In Northern California. Facilities Achieve CT Dose Reduction As Much As 50%

Radiology Associates of Sacramento, (RAS), selects Sapheneia's ClarityTM CT solution to achieve lowest CT dose for their patients

LINKOPING, Sweden, Nov. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- According to the Chief CT Technologist of RAS, Shane Shepherd, "We performed side-by-side comparisons between Sapheneia's Clarity and the solution available from our original equipment manufacturer, (OEM), of our CT scanners. Our radiologists agreed ClarityTM performed as well as the OEM solution when comparing image quality at lower doses. Additionally, Sapheneia was able to provide us a custom solution to cater to the varying requirements of our radiologist sub-specialty groups, and our variety of CT equipment".

Richard Smillie, Sales Manager for Sapheneia Global in the USA says, " We are proud of the results achieved at RAS. They are an excellent example for all medical facilities around the country as to what can be achieved regarding the lowering of CT radiation dose. The exceedingly high level of social awareness, which revolves around radiation dose to patients, has driven providers to revisit their radiation safety practices. RAS has led in these efforts. When ClarityTM was implemented, RAS had already taken measures to reduce dose via the ALARA, (as low as reasonably achievable), principal. With Clarity's iterative processing, they were able to reduce radiation dose as low as an additional 50% beyond what was previously achievable."
