PROTECT is a comprehensive program to support our customers in achieving the lowest possible dose without compromising diagnostic image quality.
The PROTECT program helps you achieve ALARA and meet current industry goals through:
Once the evaluation is complete and baselines are established, our team will present the PROTECT plan that has been developed specifically to address your goals. This plan identifies key partners onsite that will work closely with the PROTECT team to provide a review of baseline protocols and dose profiles. Finally, this step includes the discussion and proposal of specific upgrades available to help you reach your PROTECT goals. These upgrades may include the addition of services such as VeloCT, Radimetrics, PhoenixPhysics, AIDR 3D implementation and more.
The final step in the PROTECT program involves the implementation of agreed upon upgrades and protocols. Focused on training and education, this step ensures you have all of the tools and knowledge necessary to achieve your goals. The PROTECT team will visit you repeatedly to guide the optimization of dose management through implementation of software and hardware upgrades and education regarding Toshiba’s various tools for dose management. Through this education and the tools provided, the PROTECT team will enable the site to lower dose incrementally. To ensure ongoing success, the educational aspect of the implementation step includes three visits over a 3-6 month period with follow-up visits at years two and three.
