RaySafe helps you avoid unnecessary radiation

RaySafe solutions are designed to minimize the need for user interaction, bringing unprecedented simplicity & usability to the X-ray room. We're committed to establishing a radiation safety culture wherever technicians & medical staff encounter radiation.

“We have realized that there are some challenges,” Anita Tollstadius, ContextVision’s president and chief executive officer, told HCB News during an interview at the meeting. “Doctors don’t want to have different looks from different anatomies, different patients and throughout dynamic processes, and they really don’t want to retake images either. We can have a very robust, trustworthy, consistent look whether you have different exposures, or dosing, or different patients and different anatomies.”

The product can be used in all digital radiography systems, from plain, static X-⁠ray to more advanced angiography systems.

“We’ve seen many situations where the dynamic image has had big differences, when you go through the body and it’s very dark in certain areas,” Tollstadius said. “It’s very nice to be able to follow the procedure throughout the process.”

The software looks at the raw image and identifies the important areas that need to be optimized, said Ann-Sofi Hoff, marketing and product portfolio manager for ContextVision. It learned through several thousands of images with great variation in intensity and dose levels.

Altumira will available for sale to imaging OEMs in April.
