Fluoroscopic Beam Alignment Device
Reduces exposure to the patient
In misaligned fluoroscopic image intensifier systems, the portion of the field that falls outside the visible area of the image receptor does not contribute to the useful fluoroscopic image and can result in unnecessary exposure to the patient.If corrective measures are required, this device will provide a measurement of optimum beam alignment.
It consists of an aluminum plate with four sliding brass strips set in recessed channels. The strips define the visible area of the image receptor and are adjustable with respect to the center of the measurement plate. A transparent plastic overlay on the aluminum plate prevents the vertical displacement of the brass strips. Holes drilled at 1/2 " intervals through the center of each channel are filled with high density plugs. The visibility of the plugs in the fluoroscopic image permits their use as a means of centering the device.
