Radcal Launches Noninvasive Diagnostic X-Ray Multi-Analyzer Meter at AAPM

July 26, 2011 — This year at the upcoming American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) meeting in Vancouver, Canada, Radcal will be launching the new Accu-Gold Multi-Analyzer.

Utilizing the power of a laptop, the device provides an efficient way to measure, record and diagnose the performance of all x-ray machines.  It offers a package of features for medical physicists, biomedical engineers, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), field service engineers (FSEs), and state radiation inspectors by using both Radcal solid state sensors and ion chambers individually or simultaneously. It plugs directly into a USB port of the laptop and measures multiple parameters in one exposure.

The device’s applications include radiography/fluoroscopy rooms, portables, C-arms, angio suites, computed tomography (CT), mammography and dental, including cone beam CT. All measurements are automatically saved to the laptop’s hard drive. Excel templates are included for data accumulation and reporting. Based on the processing capabilities of the laptop, minute-long fluoro exposures can be captured, recorded and analyzed. These scope-like capabilities provide an accurate display of kilovolts (kV), dose and milliampere (mA) waveforms.

With each exposure, the Accu-Gold simultaneously displays and records dose, dose rate, kV, exposure time, mA, half-value layer (HVL), total filtration, pulse, pulse frequency and several more parameters. An adapter is provided to allow the use of older Radcal 10X5 series ion chambers. Soon to be released are options for light measurements as well as both invasive and non-invasive mA/mAs devices for required measurements.
