April 09, 2019
Leuven, Belgium — Qaelum NV (“Qaelum”), of Leuven, Belgium, and TOYO Corporation (“TOYO”), of Tokyo, Japan announced today that they have entered into a cooperation agreement for the distribution throughout Japan of dose monitoring solution — DOSE.
Due to the upcoming new regulations to monitor patient radiation dose in Japan and the increased awareness of the risk associated with this radiation, patient safety has become an even higher priority in medical imaging departments throughout Japan. Today, Qaelum NV and TOYO Corporation signed a Distribution Agreement for the Japanese market.
“It is a great honor for us to collaborate with such a well-respected company as TOYO” said Jurgen Jacobs, CEO of Qaelum. “We are confident that together, we can bring our DOSE solution, which is one of the most advanced radiation dose management systems currently available, to hospitals and imaging networks all over Japan”.
DOSE is a vendor neutral solution to automatically monitor and optimize patient radiation doses during medical examinations.
- Provides data on dose at the study, patient, device, modality or institution level.
- Helps ensure compliance with regulations and highlights conformance to guidelines.
- Supports radiology best practice and better-informed decisions by physicians.
The agreement allows Qaelum to officially expand into Japan, as well as adding a new product line to the healthcare division of TOYO. This strategic alliance provides support of dose management to hospitals in Japan, allowing them to better optimize their radiation dose and as such improve patient safety.
DOSE will be officially launched onto the Japanese market by TOYO, at the International Technical Exhibition of Medical Imaging 2019 (ITEM2019) in Yokohama on April 12.
