FDA OKs Unfors' PSD
Unfors has been granted 510(k) FDA approval for the Unfors PSD, Patient Skin Dosimeter.

Designed for real-time direct patient measurements of skin dose, the Unfors PSD is used during long fluoroscopic and CT procedures to prevent excessive dose usage and consequential lesions on patients.

The Unfors PSD consists of up to four unique, small sensors connected to a display unit. The small sensors can be placed anywhere on the body and will leave a minimal footprint on the X-ray image. Each sensor will display accumulated dose and exposure time. Audible and visual alarms are triggered when selected or critical dose limits are exceeded, said Unfors.
