The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Toshiba America Medical Systems' (TAMS) new dose-reduction software, Adaptive Iterative Dose Reduction 3D (AIDR 3D).

AIDR 3D is an algorithm which is designed to work in both the raw data and image data space, reducing noise while attempting to maintain image quality.

AIDR 3D can be integrated with SUREExposure 3D, a software that calculates the minimum radiation exposure required for every exam and adjusts the dose for each patient based on a pre-set, targeted level of image quality.

Headquartered in US, TAMS sells and distributes diagnostic imaging systems and coordinates clinical diagnostic imaging research for all modalities.
