Harness The Power

At GE Healthcare, we believe in a diagnostic tool that’s efficient, precise, sophisticated — and with a future full of potential. It’s nuclear medicine, and we’re dedicated to harnessing its power.

To us, that means investing in nuclear medicine and championing its use around the world. We’re helping organizations harness the power of nuclear medicine for high image quality, low injected dose, and reduced exam and reconstruction times. We’re pioneering the use of quantitation techniques to support physicians with diagnostic and treatment insights.

Most importantly, we’re doing it all with a vision to the future. With breakthroughs like CZT and others, we’ll continue harnessing the power of nuclear medicine in our technology and applications. In the end, it’s all for the benefit of clinicians and their patients, who can harness the power of a global company committed to solving big challenges everywhere.

NEMA XR 29 Compliance

Is your SPECT/CT system MITA Smart Dose Compliant?

The National Electrical Manufacturers Association's Medical Imaging & Technology Alliance (MITA) continues its dose reduction effort with the approval of MITA Smart Dose, a standard that offers healthcare providers an additional tool to optimize and manage dose in CT scanning.

Several attributes of CT equipment help physicians and technologists optimize and manage dose. The MITA Smart Dose standard, also known as NEMA XR 29-2013, bundles four of these important features to ensure that compliant equipment produces high-quality diagnostic images while supporting patient safety. They are:

  • DICOM Dose Structured Reporting, which enables recording of post-exam dose information in a standardized electronic format. This information can be included in the patient record, promoting the establishment of diagnostic reference levels, as well as facility dose management and quality assurance.
  • Pediatric and adult reference protocols, a set of pre-loaded protocols on a CT system that serve as a baseline for a variety of clinical tasks.
  • CT Dose Check, which incorporates two features - dose notifications and dose alerts - that can alert operators and physicians when dose exceeds established thresholds.
  • Automatic Exposure Control (AEC), which automatically adjusts the amount of radiation used, based on the size, shape and composition of the patient, in order to achieve a specified level of image quality.

On April 1, 2014, the President signed into law the Protecting Access to Medicare Act of 2014. Beginning in 2016, Medicare will pay less for certain diagnostic CT scans performed on CT equipment that does not meet the MITA Smart Dose CT standard. To find out if your GE Healthcare system meets the MITA Smart Dose CT standard, please access the “Check your system ID” application below.
