Tips for buying Rad/Fluoro Room, Image Intensifier
- Storage space reduction, enhanced image processing, and off-site diagnostic capabilities are some of the advantages of digital radiography over film-based radiography. Image intensifiers increase the intensity of available light in an optical system to allow use under low light conditions such as at night, to facilitate visual imaging of low-light processes such as fluorescence of materials to x-rays or gamma rays, or for conversion of non-visible light sources such as near-infrared or short wave infrared to visible.
- The tilting tables allow a wide range of tilting movements from -15° to +90° and have an average speed of 6°/sec. Horizontal-to-vertical tilt should average 15 sec.
- The non-tilting tables specify a wide range of tabletop motions but do not allow tilting angles.
- Digital radiographic systems generally perform upright examinations or table-based examinations, for which detector mounting is crucial.
- The detector is fixed in the table system in table-based units, preventing certain examinations due to patient positioning constraints. Some upright systems can be tilted to allow table based exams.
- Facilities should evaluate all types of examinations being performed before deciding which type of image intensifier will better suit their needs. The number and types of procedures will influence the features selected for the system.
- Smaller focal-spot sizes can provide better spatial resolution on film for certain studies, and options such as tomography and table tilt can increase the image intensifier system’s overall procedural capabilities.
- Departments handling trauma and emergency cases may prefer elevating tables because the table height can be adjusted to facilitate patient transfer from a mobile stretcher or a wheelchair.
- Bucky systems for both tilting and non-tilting tables should be motorized.
- To ensure acceptable film darkening, a three-field AEC device is recommended. Grid ratios should be 10:1 or higher. Grids with higher ratios provide higher image quality.
- Buyers should look into the image intensifier system’s integration into picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) already in use in the facility.
- Buyers should consider generator options as well; high-frequency generators need less space and often eliminate the need for high-voltage cables.
- To facilitate future additions to any network, compatibility with DICOM 3.0 is a requirement for all newly purchased equipment (including storage devices).
- Suppliers must provide DICOM conformance statements that explain in detail which information objects, service classes, and data encodings are supported by the system. The statements should be inspected by specialists, and should share the same format and vocabulary to facilitate comparisons between suppliers.
