QUALITY CONTROL SYSTEM
The following is a list of the test equipment used to determine the accuracy of the
a. Sensitometer. Checks out the processor by producing a series of controlled
exposures on a sheet of X-ray film (see figures 1-1 and 1-2).
b. Densitometer. Measures the density of film blackening on a selected area of
an X-ray film (see figure 1-3).
c. Thermometer (Metal Stem). See figure 1-4.
d. Wisconsin Kilovolt Peak Measurement Device. Measures accurately (plus
or minus 4) the Wisconsin Kilovolt Peak (kVp) being produced (see figure 1-5).
e. Collimator and Beam Alignment Test Tools. Ensure that a proper
conefield is produced (see figure 1-6).
f. Dosimeter. Determines how well the generator is calibrated and
measures the maximum standard fluoroscopic exposure rates (see figure 1-7).
