Pristine Imaging for Diligent Patient Care

The only available system cleared to reduce dose during image-guided therapy procedures.

Integrated within our artificial intelligence image-guided systems, FluoroShield™ is changing the game in radiation reduction by minimizing exposure for both patients and staff with a hands-free, workflow-friendly solution that is ideal for any high-volume interventional program.

Here's How it Works

  • During an interventional case, FluoroShield’s™ AI-enabled technology detects where in the anatomy the interventionalist is focused – the Region of Interest (ROI).
  • Utilizing AI, the system automatically collimates to the ROI, only taking full Field of View (FOV) images every so many frames.
  • Through advanced image processing, the system simultaneously and seamlessly integrates the ROI with the FOV image.

The Result?

Superior image quality and lower radiation exposure to patients and staff.

 

The Omega FluoroShield™ system allows interventionalists to maintain the critical view of the peripheral anatomy while drastically reducing their patient’s exposure to ionizing radiation.

Why adopt this new Standard of Care?

  • Provides the safest care to patients and staff
  • Better investment vs. buying substandard or obsolete technology
  • Market and attract new patients, staff, and referrals
  • Minimally invasive procedures can now be done on obese and high-risk patients who were not previously eligible

ROI Radiation Reduction

ROI technology is proven to substantially reduce patient radiation dose outside of the ROI while maintaining – or improving – image quality within the ROI. Omega AI image-guided ROI systems bring this proven science to reality by dynamically collimating to the ROI – leveraging AI, an ultra-fast collimator, and the world’s most advanced image processing.

Clinical Application of ROI Techniques to Radiologic Imaging (rsna.org)

Region of interest (ROI) imaging is used to substantially reduce patient dose outside of a ROI while maintaining or improving image quality within the ROI.

Assessment of Organ and Effective Dose When Using Region-of-Interest Attenuators in Cone-Beam CT and Interventional Fluoroscopy (Spiedigitallibrary.org)

In some medical-imaging procedures such as fluoroscopy, only the center of the field of view (FOV) may be needed to be visualized with optimal image quality – to reduce the dose to the patient while maintaining visualization of the entire FOV, an aperture for the region of interest (ROI) is used with a substantial reduction of dose when using an ROI during procedures.

Filtering for Noise Reduction when using Region of Interest (ROI) Fluoroscopy for Patient Dose Reduction (NCBI)

Noise-reduction techniques in combination with ROI fluoroscopy have the potential for substantial patient-dose savings in cardiac interventions.

Filtering and Dose Reduction for Dynamic Image Guidance during Neurovascular Interventions (NCBI)

A combination of ROI fluoroscopy where exposure is substantially reduced in the peripheral region outside the ROI and image processing enables patient does savings along with improved image quality.

Methods and Technologies to Reduce Radiation

Radiation Safety and Protection (NCBI)

Radiation protection aims to reduce unnecessary radiation exposure with a goal to minimize the harmful effects of ionizing radiation with three basic principles – justification, optimization, and dose limitation.
