Combining dose-tracking with a state-of-the-art dictation radiology report system, GE Healthcare and Nuance Communications now offer an integrated solution designed to empower radiologists and impact patient care.
With the robust capabilities of Nuance’s PowerScribe 360 | Reporting and improved functionality of GE Healthcare’s DoseWatch* v.1.2 solution, this new offering can provide radiologists with more time to focus on what matters most – the patient. DoseWatch* can automatically generate the exam dose report from different data sources including images, MPPS or Radiation Dose Structured Reports (RDSR). Along with an enriched radiology report, a complete patient dose record that includes cumulative dose and exam history can also be printed.
PowerScribe 360 | Reporting from Nuance works seamlessly with leading RIS/PACS solutions and enables continuous quality improvement by streamlining the reporting delivery cycle and communicating relevant data. With up to 99% accuracy, PowerScribe 360 | Reporting also offers four primary dictation styles to accommodate individual physician dictation preferences and allows users to switch between styles on a report-by-report basis.
DoseWatch* v.1.2 from GE Healthcare is a tool designed to help radiologists accurately assess their practices and implement a comprehensive, personalized optimization approach. The software, a recently-released upgrade, offers a flexible data collection method, new relevant dose metrics (Size Specific Dose Estimate [SSDE]), relevant tools for Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology, and a new notification and alerting mechanism, among other updates.
The growing clinical adoption of DoseWatch* in the US and beyond builds upon GE’s announcement last year of more than $800 million of investment in low-dose technologies over 15 years, and this year’s unveiling of the GE Blueprint for low dose – an unprecedented commitment to help leading US hospitals further reduce average patient exposure to radiation dose.
