Launch of ControlRad Trace Radiation Reduction Technology for Mobile C-Arms -

ControlRad gained FDA 510(k) clearance and commenced commercial launch of ControlRad Trace, technology that integrates with existing mobile C-arms to reduce radiation in any fluoroscopic imaging procedure. ControlRad Trace features a proprietary semi-transparent filter, tablet and image processing technology, and can be retrofitted on existing C-arms, thus reducing barriers to adoption. The device can reduce unnecessary radiation up to 89%, without compromising image quality in the region of interest and overall workflow. This is critical for medical personnel and patients, considering that an interventional fluoroscopy procedure is roughly equivalent to the adult effective dose of between 250 and 3,500 chest x-rays.
