What is “MITA Smart”?

MITA Smart is an initiative to improve patient safety by establishing and promoting safety-related standards for medical imaging equipment. Medical imaging manufacturers created MITA Smart as an integral part of the industry’s ongoing dedication to putting patients first. MITA Smart Dose CT is the first official MITA Smart standard, and industry experts are working to develop additional safety standards.
