Patient Dose Monitoring in Diagnostic Radiology

Radiation Risk Minimization Today, X-ray diagnostics is the main source of radiation to the general population. Accordingly, it is important to be able to measure the patient dose in X-ray applications, especially for children, and investigative procedures involving high radiation level. The VacuDAP device automatically measures the Dose Area Product (DAP) in full compliance with IEC 580, DIN6819 and enables you to meet Federal and State regulations.

The Measuring System

The modular Dose Area Product (DAP) measurement system VacuDAP offers a wide variety of ionization chambers and configurations to meet the requirements for different x-ray machines.

VacuDAP 2000

This device is well-suited as a quick, easy,accessory add on to your x-ray unit. It has an integrated display and operating buttons mounted directly on the ionization chamber.
