PHS Technologies Group LLC, a division of PACSHealth LLC, announced plans to integrate VirtualDose CT software from Virtual Phantoms Inc. into its dose monitoring product, DoseMonitor.

“We are pleased to announce the integration of a next generation tool into our popular DoseMonitor product,” said Mike Battin, COO of PACSHealth. “This feature will enhance organ dose modeling and ultimately improve patient safety during medical imaging procedures. The ability to effectively monitor radiation dose indices during certain medical imaging procedures has become increasingly important.”

PACSHealthDoseMonitor is a single-server, browser-based software application that automates radiation dose data collection and reporting. It fully integrates into a radiology information system, electronic medical record, and the American College of Radiology’s Dose Index Registry, helping to eliminate manual steps and reducing input errors. Facilities can accurately depict historical exposure and compare, aggregate, and interpret data from ionizing radiation sources for an individual patient, exam, or between diagnostic modalities in multiple facilities.

VirtualDose is radiation dose simulation software constructed with a well-tested family of anatomically correct phantoms, advanced graphics-processing-unit-based Monte Carlo simulation, and SaaS programming techniques that were developed from more than a decade of research. It enables users to compute doses to radiosensitive organs accurately for a broad range of the patient population, including those outside the “average” body size, and pediatric patients from newborn through adolescence. In addition, it includes data for the latest CT scanners and the most current risk coefficients for computation of effective dose.
