Omega touts x-ray dose reduction study

By staff writers

March 12, 2021 -- Imaging technology developer Omega Medical Imaging is touting a study showing that its artificial intelligence (AI)-guided fluoroscopy systems yielded lower radiation dose than conventional x-ray systems in image-guided endoscopic procedures.

In research published last year in the American Journal of Gastroenterology, researchers led by Dr. Ji Young Bang of AdventHealth in Orlando, FL, reported that Omega's AI-enabled fluoroscopy system had significantly lower radiation dose in all modes of acquisition at varying frame rates, according to the vendor.

In cine mode, the Omega system reduced radiation by approximately 75% for staff and approximately 71% for patients. It also lowered radiation by 61% for staff and 51% for patients in fluoroscopy mode, the company said.
