Radcal Exhibits Accu-Gold Touch Systems at AAPM 2019

July 9, 2019 — Radcal Corp. will be presenting the new Accu-Gold Touch platform, a multi-analyzer the company says is the latest in X-ray dose measurements, at the 2019 American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) meeting, July 14-18 in San Antonio, Texas. It features a 5-inch touchscreen, internal memory for up to 100,000 measurements and built-in Wi-Fi, which provides a powerful and safe wireless connection.

Accu-Gold Touch is capable of measuring multiple parameters simultaneously such as dose, kV, mA and light in: 

  • Radiography; 
  • Computed tomography (CT); 
  • Fluoroscopy; 
  • C-arms; 
  • Portables; 
  • Mammography; and 
  • Dental. 

Radcal offers several models of this new platform to accommodate the different requirements of medical physics, those in the field of X-ray quality assurance and acceptance testing. 

The Touch platform, when used with AG2 software, allows the user to analyze waveforms of dose, kV, mA and light, and capture data directly to any storage device, including cloud-based storage, and automatically generate Excel reports in real time.
