The Eyes Have It: Iris Biometrics Safely Identify UCSD Patients for Radiation Oncology Treatment

First few Article Sentences

A patient getting the wrong medication or the incorrect dosage of medication is a big deal. A radiation oncology patient getting the incorrect dosage or area treated with radiation? Huge. And luckily, uncommon. However, in either instance, patient safety can be preserved with a positive verification and confirmation of the patientís identification. Iris Biometrics, like the technology offered by M2SYS, where the patientís identification is verified using an eye scan, is one of the safest, most reliable ways to assure the right patient receives the right treatment or medication as prescribed by his or her physician.
