Sectra DoseTrack™ allows healthcare providers to monitor patient radiation exposure and ensure that the radiation doses are kept as low as reasonably achievable (ALARA) for increased patient safety. The cloud-based solution automatically collects, stores and monitors data from all connected modalities, saving valuable time and facilitating robust analysis for dose optimization. It can be configured using local and national Dose Reference Levels (DLR) to allow your organization to ensure that it is performing within expected thresholds.
When you need to understand what’s going on with radiation dose with real patients, Sectra DoseTrack puts it right in front of you. If what you’re looking for isn’t right on the home screen, you can get there in two clicks.
The dose from one of our CT scanners was considerably less than the other two. The images were analyzed by the radiologists and it was determined the CT images from the scanner giving less dose also had noisier images. The dose was increased slightly, the images were re-analyzed and we found we were getting a higher quality image and still staying well within what is considered a safe dose.
Sectra DoseTrack allows you to easily track and compare the radiation levels on modality, examination or patient level. By monitoring your equipment with DoseTrack, you can rapidly detect if an x-ray device is exposing patients to too much radiation. The system can be configured to provide automatic alerts when radiation levels exceed established thresholds or on number of examinations. This allows you to identify possible failures that may result in an increased radiation dose in a timely manner.
With on-demand access to the most current dose data and dose information included in patient reports, it also supports follow-up of individual patients when a radiation incident is suspected.
The system provides robust analysis capabilities for dose optimization to allow your organization to fulfill its responsibilities under the ALARA principles. It helps you identify needed actions, such as changing modalities for specific procedures, staff training to optimize the use of modalities, or imaging protocol revisions to ensure best use of equipment and staff. Consideration of patient size and demographics allow for effective organ dose calculations and patient risk assessment.
It is easy to export data from the system for reporting to regulatory authorities or for further analysis in Excel. Further, Sectra DoseTrack is a certified ACR software partner, approved to submit a hospital’s dose data to the US Dose Index Registry.
Sectra DoseTrack supports both the IHE Radiation Exposure Monitoring profile and the DICOM MPPS standard, enabling the connection of almost any modality to gain a complete dose monitoring solution. Dose information is accepted in all the commonly used data types (RDSR, MPPS, OCR, HL7, Manual Entry) ensuring a simple and proven integration to your radiology infrastructure. It also seamlessly integrates with third-party systems such as your RIS, EMR and Powerscribe 360, and it comes with the ability to dock specific components into other web enabled solutions.
Data security has always been at the core of Sectra products and DoseTrack is leading the way. Hosted in the Microsoft Azure cloud, all data is stored on encrypted disks (encryption at rest), and any data sent between the customer and the data center is also encrypted (encryption in flight). The data center is secured by firewall rules to only allow access point-to-point from named specific customers, which stops any access from other sources. All protected health information (PHI) is removed before sending, ensuring compliance with the latest guidelines of only storing data relevant to the operation of the solution.
