“For many years, the process to assess image quality was to look at images,” said Ariel Dickson, head of project management and regulatory affairs for The Phantom Lab. “Post-processing makes this more complicated. This removes the objectivity of human analysis.”
The majority of The Phantom Lab’s phantoms include two years of access to the software.

Last May, Radcal released a new ionization chamber for testing cone beam CT dental machines. Its 10X6-60DAP chamber now measures DAP and DAP Rate on CBCT systems.
“The international community currently measures DAP for dental and we are also seeing interest here in the U.S.,” said Melodie Eberhart, co-director of global sales at Radcal.
The company’s new DAPcheck Plus sensor displays DAP for fluoroscopy and radiography scanners.
The base meters are modular and they can add new sensors, Eberhart said. They can be added on to any Accu-Gold+ Digitizer or Accu-Gold Touch meter system
Radcal also updated its Accu-Gold 2.0 software and Touch meter firmware, adding wave form depiction and new measurement capabilities.
Last November, at the RSNA 2020 Annual Meeting, RTI Group released its RTI Scatter Probe, a 100-square-centimeter solid state detector for leakage and scatter detection in X-ray environments.
This probe is typically used to quality-assure X-ray systems during manufacturing, regular service appointments and after replacement of certain parts.
