According to Imaging3, its new product, the Dominion Volumetric Imaging Scanner (DVIS), utilizes between 100 to 1,000 times less radiation than a standard CT scan. 

The Burbank, Calif.-based Imaging3 said it has utilized the fluoroscopy technology to emit a much-reduced dosage of radiation and produce a more accurate image. In fact, the image is more accurate than the standard CT scanners because the reading is 3D and constructed in real time, the company said.

The DVIS device is currently awaiting FDA approval, although it is patented, according to Dean Janes, founder of Imaging3.
