The Mini-Doppler Flow 404 from Gammex tests both Doppler and B-mode ultrasound systems in a single unit, and is ideal for cardiology, musculoskeletal and breast applications.
Computed tomography (CT) users can now accurately represent scatter effects from wide-beam CT scans with the ACR 464 extension plates from Gammex.
The Gammex CT (computed tomography) Perfusion Phantom is designed to mimic a perfusion study where traceable material is monitored as it travels through brain tissue. Software that is proprietary to the CT scanner is then used to determine blood flow rate curves and to compare them to known normals. This provides a reference baseline.
Multiple studies and products were presented at the 2014 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) conference in December about emerging technologies in breast imaging, with a focus on how they will affect women who have dense breasts. Most researchers have been comparing the utility of mammography screening versus tomosynthesis.
Solid Water HE is the next generation of solid water phantoms by Gammex. It is designed for both therapy and imaging with improved uniformity and durability in mind.
The Gammex “micro” diode laser family offers an economical alternative to conventional laser systems used for alignment purposes. Gammex “micro” has dimensions that are considerably smaller than other fixed lasers.
The Gammex 464 CT phantom better indicates the scanner's performance with a phantom that more accurately mimics a torso. The optional Gammex 464-Ring torso adapter permits the use of the Gammex 464 Accreditation in this type of application
The Gammex 410 family of ultrasound phantoms lets users pick and choose what level of testing is right for quality assurance. All 410 phantoms allow evaluation of uniformity and artifacts, geometric accuracy and system sensitivity economically. This phantom provides a standard of quality assurance required for routine testing of ultrasound scanning systems.
July 15, 2014 — Sun Nuclear Corp. announced its intended acquisition of Gammex Inc., which became effective July 2. The acquisition combines two complementary product lines within the radiation oncology marketplace, and adds diagnostic radiology quality assurance (QA) capability to Sun Nuclear's therapeutic radiation oncology QA and dosimetry position.
Gammex’s new 621 Lung CT Reference Phantom is a simple to use device that will provide a CT number in the range of common lung disorders. It consists of an acrylic shell that houses four reference sections. The material in each section has a different density and a correspondingly different CT number.
