SHELTON, CT, Nov. 27, 2017 /CNW/ - International medical imaging IT and cybersecurity company Sectra (STO: SECT-B) is globally introducing gadolinium tracking in its dose monitoring solution, Sectra DoseTrack. Gadolinium is a contrast agent commonly used to enhance images during MRI exams. By systematically registering gadolinium information, healthcare providers can reduce the risk of patients experiencing negative side effects of excessively high accumulated levels of gadolinium. Sectra is showcasing Sectra DoseTrack, including this functionality, during the RSNA global radiology show in Chicago.
"The use of contrast agents such as gadolinium is a very common way to enhance details of different organs during an MRI exam. However, for the sake of patient safety, it is crucial that radiology can easily track each gadolinium injection. By entering this information in Sectra DoseTrack, healthcare providers can ensure relevant information is available throughout the organization either from the EMR, from the dose monitoring solution or in Sectra PACS," says Ian Judd, Product Manager for Sectra DoseTrack.
