Via Christi Health Hospital’s comprehensive dose management program encompasses all ionizing radiation modalities including digital radiography.

Capt. Jerry Thomas and Alan Cebula, MS, knew that a comprehensive dose management program needed to start with the detector. Via Christi replaced all chest and portable x-ray imaging systems with the FDR D-EVO. They now get clearer x-ray images at lower doses.

Cebula notes that Via Christi has reduced dose across DR studies by at least 50% compared to CR.
