Dose Less, Care More

Eating bananas, plane flights and cooking. These are just a few everyday situations where you are exposed to radiation. Just as you wouldn’t worry about these, Samsung is aiming to lower dose exposure in X-ray systems to levels comparable to everyday items.

Do you see the difference?

Samsung is constantly working to lower dose exposure in x-ray scans to push ALARA efforts to the next level for healthcare professionals. Samsung’s S-vueTM image processing offers excellence in image quality for greater diagnostic confidence with only half the dose. ** Using GC85A chest x-ray

Phantom study result

S-Vue™ image processing engine cuts dose by 50% on chest X-ray with no loss in image excellence.

The new spatial noise reduction algorithm improved the overall image quality of digital chest phantom radiographs. We think that this will result in the ability to take
lower dose chest radiographs without sacrificing diagnostic confidence.

Clinical research result

The GC85A with the S-Vue™ image processing engine provides images with 50% dose reduction while maintaining image quality.

  1. 1)The images above were taken with GC85A
  2. 2)The claim concerning GC85A is based on limited phantom and clinical study results.
  3. 3)Only routine PA chest radiography for average adults were studied, excluding pediatric patients.
