Industry Dynamics

Growth Drivers
Radiation exposure for patients and medical professionals has steadily increased with the introduction of CT-guided diagnosis and intervention, including nuclear medicine-based scans and angiography. Due to this, statutory bodies have made it necessary to monitor and record patients' exposure to radiation in their medical records. In addition, it is essential to monitor how much radiation doctors are exposed to while performing their duties.

For instance, G.E. provides a program called DoseWatch. It keeps track of the radiation dose supplied to patients at a particular facility. The data can be categorized according to devices, protocols, or operators to spot dose outliers more easily. Sectra, among other programs, provides web-based dose tracking. The American College of Radiology has certified Sectra, and Sectra can send dose data from a hospital directly to its Dose Index Registry.
