About ControlRad Trace
Fluoroscopically guided procedures (FGP) with C-arms have allowed for major advances in treating countless diseases, however they expose patients and medical staff to ionizing radiation, which may increase a person’s lifetime risk of developing cancer.1 ControlRad Trace is the only technology that can be integrated into existing mobile C-arms to reduce radiation in any fluoroscopic imaging procedure. With its proprietary semi-transparent filter, tablet and image processing technology, the ControlRad Trace solution can be retrofitted on existing C-arms, reducing the barrier to adopting the technology. The ControlRad Trace reduces unnecessary radiation up to 89%,2 protecting patients and medical staff without compromising image quality in the region of interest and overall workflow. The medical staff draws a region of interest (ROI) on a ControlRad tablet, which in real-time optimizes image quality in the ROI while reducing unnecessary radiation in the periphery.
ControlRad is a privately held medical technology company developing innovative products that dramatically reduce the radiation exposure from fluoroscopically guided procedures (FGP) for patients and healthcare professionals. ControlRad’s products are designed to improve safety without compromising image quality or workflow. They include an integrated set of proprietary components, which optimize the X-ray beam to deliver optimal image quality in the clinically relevant region while maintaining appropriate resolution in the periphery. ControlRad is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, and has engineering development facilities in Kfar Saba, Israel. For more information, visit www.controlrad.com.
