DoseWise Portal

Radiation Exposure Management Software

The first step in building an effective radiation dose management strategy is collecting complete and accurate data so you can analyze and measure your current performance.

 

The DoseWise Portal functionality is at the core of Philips’ comprehensive dose management program. The web-based software solution automatically collects, measures, analyzes and reports radiation exposure data on an individual and group basis and allows for real-time staff exposure measurements using DoseAware. It provides a streamlined, efficient way to review data on radiation exposure to both patients and staff.

By collecting and analyzing the right data you can:

Key capabilities

Tools

 

The DoseWise Portal provides advanced analytic tools, such as customizable dashboards and drill-downs for multi-vendor/multi-modality imaging systems. Chart Builder analytics creates bar charts, scatter plots, box plots and tables by simply dragging and dropping the DICOM field into a graph.

Data

 

The DoseWise Portal captures all patient radiation events, not just those sent to PACS, and retrieves data directly from the imaging equipment. This prevents you from missing data that is discarded by a Technologist due to poor image quality. The radiation from these exams are factored toward a patient’s exposure history.

 

DoseWise Portal can map your CT exam naming convention to the RadLex® Playbook to standardize your exam names for external benchmarking.

Data

Services that consistently prove their value

 

Current needs

Access to data useful for monitoring, tracking and controlling radiation exposure 

 

Proactive needs

Identify the types of interventions that optimize radiation protection

 

Predictive needs

Ensuring that procedures are justifed for the patient and radiation exposure is managed

Alerts

 

The DoseWise Portal can create custom alerts based on your preference. Regardless of exam type, you can select your protocol or exam name and add alert triggers, such as:

  • Patient's age
  • DLP
  • CTDIvol
  • Compressed Breast Thickness
  • DAP
  • ESD
  • mAs
  • AGD/exam
  • AGD/exposure
  • Staff dose level
Alert

Reports

 

In addition to offering a platform to create custom reports using Chart Builder, DoseWise Portal contains several standard reports:

  • CT exams sorted by CTDIvol
  • CT exams sorted by DLP
  • CT volume by exam name
  • CT volume by Reference Exam Name
  • High utilization patients sorted by number of exams
  • High utilization patients sorted by total effective dose
  • Evaluate staff dose by procedure and lab
Reporting

Benchmarking

 

Meeting the new radiation dose requirements for benchmarking requires standardizing your exam nomenclature and comparing your data against national registries or diagnostic reference levels.

 

The DoseWise Portal takes your CT exam names from your RIS and automatically maps them to the RadLex Playbook naming convention.  This allows you to compare your exam data to industry benchmarks, such as the American College of Radiology’s Dose Index Registry™.

Benchmarking

Compatibility with IntelliSpace PACS2

 

The DoseWise Portal is compatible with the Philips PACS system. Clicking on a clinical image or the patient’s name in the worklist launches the DoseWise Portal corresponding dosimetry page. Clicking on a particular CT image and selecting “dose history” allows you to see the exposure data for that exam.
