Personalized Protocols for Standardized Success
Personalized CT contrast dosing software eliminates guesswork when using the MEDRAD® smart injection systems. Use of the software can help users avoid poor image quality that can result from improper dosing, among other benefits:
- Facilitate implementation of multiple CT abdomen protocol strategies
- Manage cardiac-imaging complexity
- Enable improved protocol adherence
“Personalization has helped us achieve a 30% reduction in contrast volume for abdomen studies.”*

Our workstation helps technologists account for unique patient and study variables. Certegra® P3T™ personalized CT dosing software personalizes CT protocols for cardiac, pulmonary and abdomen (liver, pancreas and kidneys) studies. P3T™ 2.0 Software enables technologists to:
CARDIAC CT PERSONALIZED DOSE
Comparison of cardiac images and enhancement of coronary tree using P3T versus standard injection protocol.
Control Group 1 received 80 mL of CM at 6 mL/s. P3T Group injection parameters were individually adjusted to patient weight, the duration of CT data acquisition and attenuation parameters following a test bolus. Control Group 2 the volume of CM was adjusted to the duration of CT data acquisition and injected at 5 mL/s.

ABDOMINAL CT PERSONALIZED DOSE
Contrast volume is automatically adjusted, based on systematic scientific methods, according to patient, procedure and prescribed physician parameters.
