For their part, OEMs are living up to Sharrock’s predictions.

GE Healthcare is continuing to address customer needs through innovations and new options for existing offerings. Earlier this year, the company introduced a new configuration to its Innova 3100-IQ (Optima Edition). This configuration delivers many of the features provided by the original Innova 3100-IQ, including the all important dose reduction technology and high-quality imaging, but comes in at a lower price point. By removing some of the more-advanced imaging options, GE has been able to offer a machine listing for $500,000 less.

Meanwhile, last year, Philips introduced DoseAware, which allows real-time monitoring of dose exposure during procedures. Although the product does not directly reduce dose, it does map the amount of exposure during a procedure and allows providers to be more aware of the patient’s exposure. “These are little changes,” says Fabian. “But as a result, you practice better dose management.”

Fabian says that technology will improve gradually in the coming years to address concerns regarding dose and integration. He does not expect something as radical as the flat panel detector to be introduced to the market any time soon.

“I don’t think there’s anything earth shattering in the future,” says Fabian. “But every vendor will continue to find out how we can improve our systems.”
