Richardson Healthcare Announces XR-29 Compliance Solution

Meeting the Regulatory Challenge with the Only FDA-Cleared Non-OEM Solution

 

LaFox, Illinois – August 1, 2016… Richardson Healthcare, a division of Richardson Electronics, Ltd. (NASDAQ: RELL), today announced the addition of Medic Vision Imaging Solutions’ SafeCT®-29 that helps achieve XR-29 compliance to our diagnostic imaging product portfolio. This solution allows hospitals and imaging facilities to avoid facing reimbursement penalties or investing in new equipment, ultimately saving significant costs.

 

Medic Vision specializes in image enhancement and CT radiation management solutions. The SafeCT-29 solution offers Richardson Healthcare customers the only non-OEM solution to comply with XR-29 that is cleared by the FDA. SafeCT-29 meets the guidelines required by CMS in the NEMA XR-29 “Smart Dose” standard for CT imaging equipment.

 

SafeCT-29 is vendor-neutral, and seamlessly integrates with the CT scanner’s existing configuration. The product creatively uses the system’s own software to prevent scanning when assigned dosage exceeds per-patient targets. Installation is completed within hours, requires minimal workflow interruption, and is cost-effective compared to other solutions on the market.

 

Pat Fitzgerald, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Richardson Healthcare, said, “XR-29 compliance represents a crucial challenge for our customers. It was important for us to help find a reliable, FDA-cleared product that lets providers keep their current technology in place without losing valuable reimbursement revenues. We believe SafeCT-29 is a great, affordable answer to this challenge, and we are proud to help bring it to our market.”
