ACE Mode

Automated patient-specific protocol selection

Xoran’s ACE Mode Protocol is an automatic radiation exposure control feature

ACE Mode helps doctors reduce radiation dose by suggesting a protocol based on patient-specific data

Available on MiniCAT IQ

Easy-to-use—ACE Mode appears as an additional option in the drop-down menu of available MiniCAT patient scan protocols

Doctors make the final decision as to which protocol best fits the patient’s needs

Lower radiation is better

While Computed Tomography (CT) scans are often necessary for diagnosis, all CT systems use X-rays, which expose patients to ionizing radiation. Xoran understands the importance of keeping radiation dose low. In designing its CT systems, Xoran follows the ALARA principle- “As Low As Reasonably Achievable”-which means that Xoran minimizes radiation as much as possible without compromising image quality

ACE Mode helps to lower radiation dose

MiniCAT’s effective radiation dose has always been a fraction of full-sized CT scanners. Now Xoran’s “ACE Mode” (Automatic Control of Exposure) may further help lower radiation by automatically recommending a scan protocol with a dose based on patient-specific data, in conformance with NEMA XR-29

ACE Mode uses patient-specific data

Xoran’s innovative ACE Mode evaluates patient radiodensity, factors in patient age, and generates a recommended protocol of Small, Medium, or Large.

Doctors decide the protocol

Physicians and health care providers are the decision makers when it comes to which protocol will be used for each patient. They may choose to use the ACE Mode recommended protocol or may “override” the ACE Mode protocol and simply choose a protocol based on the patient’s clinical needs

FAQ

What size room do I need for the MiniCAT IQ scanner?

What size room do I need for the MiniCAT IQ scanner?

We recommend that you use MiniCAT IQ in a room that is at least 6' x 9' or larger. This size will give you and your patients a little more elbow room, and may minimize or even eliminate the amount of radiation shielding needed. Weighing in at only 450 lbs., MiniCAT IQ installation is quick and efficient, without the need for additional floor reinforcement or room modification.

Do I need to install lead shielding in the scanning room? Who can perform scans with the MiniCAT IQ scanner? What is the radiation dose for patients? How long does a scan take?
