Philips honors innovation in radiation dose management with the 3rd Annual ISRRT Dosewise Radiographer of the Year contest

leave a comment »

-ISRRT and Philips highlight global efforts to optimize radiation dose exposure

ANDOVER, Mass. /PRNewswire/ — Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA) today launched the 3rdAnnual “ISRRT Dosewise Radiographer of the Year” contest to further increase awareness about the risks of radiation dose exposure during diagnostic image testing. The annual contest, conducted in partnership with the International Society of Radiographers and Radiological Technologists (ISRRT), recognizes dose-conscious radiographers from around the world for their contribution in improving dose tracking and measurement and efforts toward overall radiation dose reduction.

Logo – http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20140122/NE50581LOGO

As one of the early pioneers of radiation dose management solutions, Philips extended its leadership with the launch of the DoseWise Portal, a comprehensive radiation dose management software solution that monitors dose exposure risk for patients and clinicians. It allows providers to proactively record, analyze and monitor imaging radiation dose for patients and clinicians across multiple diagnostic settings. The solution automates monitoring and tracking, facilitating compliance with reform and accreditation requirements. The “ISRRT Dosewise Radiographer of the Year” contest is geared to encourage innovation and generate new ways to manage radiation dose risk.

“With patients and clinicians becoming more aware of the risks of radiation dose exposure, developing lower dose solutions is becoming a top priority for hospital and health systems,” said Dominic Siewko, Director of Clinical Dose Management at Philips. “Over the past few years, we’ve seen some of the most innovative research to address this challenge, and this contest is designed to further encourage new ideas and reinforce our commitment to collaborating with clinicians and scientists around effective radiation dose management programs.”

Judged by ISRRT members, the Radiographer of the Year will be selected based on the project that best demonstrates dose management practices. Applications are open for practicing radiographers who are citizen of an ISRRT Member Country or an Associate Member of ISRRT. Entrants must complete an online quiz and also provide a written submission. ISRRT will provide the Radiographer of the Year with airfare and entry to Radiological Society of North America’s (RSNA) Annual Meeting for 2015, and the opportunity to present their entry to their peers.

Last year’s content winner, Dr. Sonyia McFadden, Lecturer, Diagnostic Radiography at the University of Ulster,Belfast, UK received the award for her research, entitled, “Dose Optimization in Pediatric Interventional Cardiology.” Dr. McFadden surveyed hospitals in Ireland and found a variation in practice and protocols for pediatric imaging, which was directly impacting radiation dose exposure for children.

The deadline for submission is September, 30 2015. For rules and to access the application, visitwww.philips.com/dosewise-contest.

Philips is also launching the first Iterative Model Reconstruction (IMR) “Case of the Year” contest, designed to identify industry leaders using lower dose and higher resolution technologies to improve diagnostic confidence. Contest winners will be recognized at RSNA. For more information, visit the IMR contest page.

Dr. Othmar Belker Appointed New CFO of Schenck Process

leave a comment »

DARMSTADT, Germany, July 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Dr. Othmar Belker will become a member of the Management Board and Chief Financial Officer of the Schenck Process Group effective August 1, 2015.  In this capacity, he will head the company’s global finance organization and, together with Andreas Evertz, President and CEO, will be at the helm of the company, a specialist in measuring and process technology. A Doctor of Economics, he was previously the Chief Financial Officer of the NORMA Group for more than eight years, where he established its international finance department. During this time, he was in charge of overseeing the IPO and subsequent refinancing of the company, the market leader for leading-edge connection technology.

(Photo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20150722/239778)

As Chief Financial Officer (CFO), Dr. Belker will replace Mr. Wolfgang Kleinschmidt, who is not renewing his contract and who will be leaving the company at his own request at the end of July in order to tackle new challenges.

“We are delighted to have won Dr. Othmar Belker, a proven and internationally experienced financial expert who has an excellent reputation and, along with his colleague, Andreas Evertz, will be accompanying Schenck Process’ further development,” says Dr. Winfried Walzer, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Schenck Process Holding GmbH.

A Doctor of Economics, he was CFO of the Norma Group from Maintal near Frankfurt from 2006 to March 2015. Under his overall control, the connection technology specialist was floated in 2011 and grew significantly as part of further acquisitions. Before that, Dr. Belker gained experience as CFO at the global automotive supplier Schefenacker, at the listed construction supplier Lindner Holding, and at a listed investment company.

Wolfgang Kleinschmidt has worked successfully at Schenck Process for more than 20 years, in the last three as a member of the Management Board and as CFO.

Syneron Receives Korean MFDS Regulatory Clearance for PicoWay Picosecond Laser

leave a comment »

IRVINE, Calif. /PRNewswire/ — Syneron Medical Ltd. (NASDAQ: ELOS), a global market leader in the aesthetic medical device marketplace, announced today that it has received Korean Ministry of Food and Drug Safety (MFDS) regulatory clearance for the PicoWay® picosecond laser. With this regulatory clearance, the Company can fulfill PicoWay orders from its Korean distribution partner, with additional commercial launch activity in Korea anticipated later in the third quarter 2015.

Logo – http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20120528/535447

Amit Meridor, Chief Executive Officer of Syneron Medical, said, “We are pleased to receive Korean regulatory clearance for PicoWay, expanding physician and patient access to this unique technology. Korea is an important market where we have a strong commercial history and PicoWay provides a much desired treatment option for discerning Korean physicians and patients, who are looking for a breakthrough technology that delivers a high degree of efficacy, demonstrated by dedicated Asian-market clinical studies.”

Mr. Meridor added, “There has been strong interest in PicoWay since its introduction in late 2014 and subsequent U.S. FDA clearance for benign pigmented lesions and tattoo removal. We expect continued momentum as we introduce the system to more customers and gain new regulatory clearances around the world.”

PicoWay incorporates picosecond (one trillionth of a second) pulse duration to generate an ultra-short pulse and very high peak power of laser energy on the skin. The high energy, ultra-short picosecond laser pulse creates a strong photo-mechanical impact that optimizes fracturing of tattoo ink or pigmentation. Tattoo colors known to be resistant to nanosecond devices can now be treated. There is also minimal risk of side effects, as the ultra-short pulses require low fluences to break up pigmentation. The innovative PicoWay Technology™ is the world’s first dual wavelength picosecond laser and is integrated into a proven, reliable Candela platform that offers high reliability, demonstrated performance and low cost of ownership.

About Syneron Candela

Syneron Candela is a leading global aesthetic device company with a comprehensive product portfolio and a global distribution footprint. The Company’s technology enables physicians to provide advanced solutions for a broad range of medical-aesthetic applications including body contouring, hair removal, wrinkle reduction, tattoo removal, improving the skin’s appearance through the treatment of superficial benign vascular and pigmented lesions, and the treatment of acne, leg veins and cellulite.
