Press Release

Radcal Corporation, Monrovia, California, announces today their new stand-alone diagnostic x-ray instrument as part of the Accu-Gold Family of meters.

Monrovia, CA, November 20, 2017: Radcal Corporation announces today that they will demonstrate at the RSNA 2017 a new line of stand-alone Accu-Gold instruments. With the largest 5 inch touchscreen in the industry these systems make diagnostic x-ray quality assurance even faster and easier.

Radcal officially releases the Accu-Gold Touch family of systems

As a premier provider of diagnostic radiation test instruments, Radcal is excited to announce the release of a new line of stand-alone instruments, the Accu-Gold Touch Series. These measurement systems incorporate the largest capacitive 5 inch touchscreen in the industry for a bright and straightforward user experience. In addition, the Accu-Gold Touch provides access to the full lineup of Accu-Gold sensors, the most extensive line of x-ray quality assurance sensors available. The Accu-Gold Touch provides the accuracy and reliability you’ve come to expect from Radcal in an economical package.

Alternatively, The Accu-Gold Touch Professional Series provides wired and wireless computer interfaces. Using the Accu-Gold Windows application users are able to access a rich set of advanced capabilities such as automated Excel-based reporting and waveform analysis. Current Accu-Gold system users should explore our Accu-Gold Touch conversion option.

Radcal will be demonstrating these instruments at RSNA 2017. Visit our booth #1529 for more information.

CT Beam Width Measurements Made Easy

CT Beam Width MeasurementsRadcal is a premier provider of diagnostic radiation test instruments including the most comprehensive suite of x-ray sensors in the industry.  Among these are an extensive selection of gold standard ion chambers including those tailored for CT quality assurance and maintenance.  ACR and Joint Commission requirements demand that medical physicists measure beam width for today’s CT systems.  Methods for performing this measurement either require special hardware and software or expensive consumables.  Radcal is pleased to introduce The CTBW Tool Kit based on patent pending technology.  This economical Toolkit works in conjunction with Radcal’s 10×6-3CT ion chamber to make beam width measurements with excellent precision.  Two exposures determine a calibration factor and then beam widths for each additional collimation setting are calculated from a single additional exposure.  Radcal’s free Accu-Gold Excel software automates the process and makes these measurements quick and easy.

Accu-Dyn+ Digitizes Dynalyzer Results and Makes Them Available in Microsoft Excel

Accu Dyn+X-ray generators are manufactured to exacting standards that require precise measurement of the voltage (kV) and current (mA) applied to the x-ray tube. Radcal’s Dynalyzer product is the gold standard for measuring these quantities in the production environment. In the past, visualizing the data provided by the Dynalyzer required a digital display or scope. Radcal is pleased to announce the release of the Accu-Dyn+ solution which digitizes Dynalyzer results and makes them available in Microsoft Excel on a Windows-based tablet or personal computer. Analysis and reporting of kV behavior and practical peak voltage (PPV) has never been easier.

Monday November 7th is International Day of Medical Physics

international-day-of-medical-physicsTo raise awareness of our profession, the International Organization for Medical Physics (IOMP) will celebrate this year, on November 7, the International Day of Medical Physics (IDMP).

On that day in 1867, Marie Sklodowska-Curie, known for her pioneering research on radioactivity, was born in Poland. The theme of IDMP 2013 is ‘Radiation Exposure from Medical Procedures: Ask the Medical Physicist!’ This is an excellent opportunity to promote the role of medical physicists in the worldwide medical scene.
