Regular mammography screening is one of the most common and effective life-saving medical procedures available today. Given its massive proliferation, it is important to ensure high quality imagery is obtained with the minimal x-ray exposure making QA on these systems critical. Radcal instruments have provided MQSA compliant testing since its inception and continue to progress, supporting today’s 3D and Cu filtering enhancement technologies.
This configuration is a powerful and cost effective system for quality assurance and preventative maintenance. The system incorporates a mammographic multi-sensor for measurement of dose, kV, and filtrations characteristics. The Rapid-Gold digitizer is an excellent match to the selected sensor. The 10”display provides an intuitive touchscreen interface suitable for running the Accu-Gold Windows application.
The advanced configuration builds on the basic configuration by adding the 10×6-6M ion chamber providing gold standard dose and dose rate measurements for the diverse anode filter combinations used in mammography. The WiFi Nugget is incorporated for convenient wireless connectivity.
The complete system upgrades the diagnostic multi-sensor to the integrated diagnostic/mammography multi-sensor to accommodate most mammography quality assurance tasks. This system also adds an ion chamber suitable for QA on most CT systems. The digitizer is upgraded to Radcal’s flagship product which simultaneously supports solid-state and ion chamber sensors.
