The Radiation Management Services division of Cardinal Health Inc. unveils three new quality assurance (QA) instruments for diagnostic imaging systems.

The systems include the AEC-6 system, Mamchex and Radchex. Each can be used for the calibration and daily automatic exposure control QA.

The AEC-6 System cassettes' circuitry analyzes the light output from the intensifying screen and converts the light into a digital electrical signal that is fed to an onboard microprocessor for analysis, says the company. The microprocessor then sends information via the interface box to a computer or Personal Data Assistant (PDA) for software analysis, using mathematical algorithms that convert the microprocessor information to optical density (OD) outputs.

The AEC-6, Mamchex and Radchex Systems are intended for service engineers, medical physicists, and technologists.
