Learn more about the MITA XR-29 Standards

The MITA XR-29 Smart Dose standards include four new feature requirements to help CT users perform high-quality diagnostic imaging while managing radiation dose:

  • DICOM Dose Structured Reporting – Recording of post-exam dose information in a standardized electronic format.
  • CT Dose Check – Dose notifications and dose alerts that notify operators and physicians when dose exceeds established thresholds.
  • Automatic Exposure Control (AEC) – Automatically adjusts the amount of radiation used, based on the size, shape and composition of the patient.
  • Pediatric & Adult Reference Protocols – Pre-loaded protocols on the CT systems that serve as a baseline for a variety of clinical tasks.

Find out if your Philips CT scanner is XR-29 compliant.
