RaySafe i2 – Real-time Dosimetry Insight
Approximately 3.6 billion X-ray examinations are performed worldwide each year, leading to earlier and more accurate diagnosis of medical diseases. However, clinical staff and patients face significant risks of stochastic and deterministic impacts of radiation. Authorized regulatory bodies emphasize the importance of keeping the dose to medical staff and patients as low as reasonably achievable (ALARA).
Minimizing exposure and achieving the ALARA standard
The traditional method to provide radiation safety is by offering radiation protection training. The medical staff that works in this very dynamic environment easily overlooks the invisible radiation risk. This can often lead to higher than necessary radiation exposure.
The RaySafe i2 allows staff to visualize X-ray in real-time. Building a strong radiation safety culture starts with giving the medical staff real-time insight about their personal exposure. This enables and empowers physicians, nurses, and staff to more effectively use all the radiation reduction solutions provided in the room.
