New dosimeter for diagnostic X-ray QA

By 30th January 2014No Comments

Unfors RaySafe, the Swedish-based developer of measuring
instruments for the quality assurance of X-ray equipment has launched RaySafe
X2 Prestige which is suitable for all standard imaging procedures in diagnostic


The measuring device consists
of a base unit and external sensors for radiography, fluoroscopy, computed
tomography and mammography measurements as well as monitor tests. An additional
mAs sensor can be integrated into the base unit. The sensors capture all
relevant parameters with just one measurement, providing users with the
information they require about dose, dose rate, kVp, HVL, total filtration,
exposure time, pulse, pulse rate, dose/frame, mA, mAs and the correspondent
waveforms on the touchscreen. The stacked sensor technology also prevents heel
effects on the measurements. The touchscreen can display up to twelve
parameters at the same time and delivers parameter-specific graphical analyses
by simply scrolling through. In addition to its intuitive operation, the system
is highly precise, and can store up to 10,000 measurements in the base unit and
display the relevant waveforms for kV and dose rates. Various series of
measurements are thus made available for the purposes of reference and
comparison. With the accompanying X2 View software, additional tools are
available for conducting computer analyses. An Excel interface also offers an
easy-to-use reporting option. Field service engineers and physicists save
valuable time with the RaySafe X2 Prestige, and X-ray machine downtime
resulting from tests is kept to an absolute minimum.
