EVERETT, Washington, March 6, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Unfors RaySafe, the global leader of X-ray quality assurance solutions, celebrated its 1,000th installation of the RaySafe i2 dose management system at the European Congress of Radiology (ECR) in Vienna, Austria.
The RaySafe i2 is an active dosimetry system that gives real-time insight about personal radiation exposure. By giving real-time, easily accessible data about their radiation exposure, the RaySafe i2 allows medical staff to immediately change their behavior to minimize dose.
Personal dose management is an essential component of RaySafe's radiation safety philosophy. It is a key ingredient necessary for a facility to achieve a culture of radiation safety, one of the company's core missions. In fact, a study by the University of Rochester showed a 50 percent reduction in staff dose over a nine-month period as the result of using these real-time personal dosimeters.
"This is a huge milestone for us," explains Magnus Kristoferson, CEO for Unfors RaySafe. "We're thrilled to see the RaySafe i2 system gaining momentum around the world, and this is only the beginning. This is part of the continuing commitment of Fluke Biomedical and Unfors RaySafe to driving industry innovation and value through bringing ground breaking solutions to the market and to our customers."
These 1,000 installations include systems sold through partners including Philips Healthcare, GE Healthcare, Siemens Healthcare and Toshiba Medical Systems.
"The RaySafe i2 helps keep people safe. In my opinion, there is no greater investment a company can make than in the safety of its employees," Bart LeClou, Personal Dosimetry Business Area Manager for Unfors RaySafe added.
