SharpView touts image-enhancing software results

Swedish firm SharpView of Linköping, Sweden, a partner of ContextVision, has received welcome clinical results from Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston that suggest its image-enhancing software helps reduce CT radiation dose.

The results, presented at the American Roentgen Ray Society (ARRS) meeting in Boston, show a relative dose reduction of as much as 75% for kidney assessment and at least 50% for abdominal exams when SharpView's software package is used, the company said.

The technology is based on algorithms that filter out noise, making imaging with lower radiation amounts possible.
