September 15, 2020 -- ControlRad has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for the marketing of its Trace fluoroscopy radiation dose reduction technology with GE OEC 9900 Mobile C-arms from GE Healthcare.

Trace can be integrated on existing mobile C-arms and utilizes a proprietary semitransparent filter, tablet along with enhanced image-processing techniques to lower radiation dose for any fluoroscopic imaging procedure. ControlRad received the original clearance for Trace in 2019.
