Medsquare signs a partnership with Virtual Phantoms to add a new module: calculation of the organ dose

February 28, 2017 — Medsquare is proud to announce the integration of the organ dose module ‘VirtualDose™CT’ into its DACS Radiation Dose Monitor (RDM) solution. Developed in partnership with Virtual Phantoms, Inc., this new module will be added to RDM’s existing features and will be presented for the first time at the European Congress of Radiology (ECR).


The features of the organ dose module are the following:

  • Monte Carlo algorithm calculation of mean doses delivered to organs by type of activity using existing dose data (DLP, CTDI, etc.)
  • Estimation of the dose received by the fetus from the different stages of gestation of the pregnant woman
  • Several parameters are considered: weight, height, age, pregnancy stages of the pregnant woman, etc.
  • Calculation in accordance with ICRP- 60 and ICRP-103 recommendations

“With the calculation of the organ dose, Medsquare is opening a new perspective on patient radiation safety. This agreement − the fruit of over several months of exchanges between the two companies − continues the process of reducing and optimizing the dose delivered to the patient,” said Dominique Gabriel, CEO Medsquare.
