Over the past twenty years, numerous devices and test objects for the control of x-ray machines have been created, as well as methods for their application have been developed.
abroad controls are made by firmsPTW-FreiburgVictoreenUnfors InstrumentsRTI-Electronics and others.
To ensure efficiency and minimize labor costs for testing x-ray medical equipment, in world practice, devices with the principle of "non-invasive control" are used, i.e. do not require connection to the electrical circuit of the device.
the Principle of operation of devices for measuring parameters such as anode voltage is based on the principle of radiation measurements - determination of x-ray energy using several pairs of detectors (silicon detectors with different input filtration) and the subsequent calculation based on the programmed dependencies.
the Dosimeter can be used for measurements to a variety of medical or x-ray installations and devices. In particular:
> mammography devices
>various instruments for surgeries

compression Meter 163 The Breast Compression Test Device
Control of the correct operation of the compression device of mammographic x-ray machines.
quality Control of this parameter of mammographic x-ray systems is important for obtaining a reliable image during the diagnostic study. Mammograph breast compressor minimizes patient mobility, reduces the possibility of scattered radiation, increases image contrast and reduces radiation load on the breast by reducing the overall thickness of breast tissue.
