Accu-Gold Dose+ diagnostic X-ray meter

November 18, 2014 — Radcal Corporation announced the release of its first WiFi device, the Nugget, which will be unveiled at the 2014 RSNA trade show, along with the new Accu-Dose+ ion chamber based diagnostic meter, Accu-Gold, to replace the legacy dose meters.

The Nugget is a unique “snap-on” enhancement to any of the Accu-Gold meters. Recognizing that the system display and X-ray sensors are often widely separated, wireless capability eliminates the need to be tethered by a cable.  In order to address transmission stability, data quality and range issues characteristic of other vendor’s Bluetooth solutions, Radcal has designed a WiFi (IEEE 802.11) wireless connection.  The Nugget is compatible with all past or present Accu-Gold meters.

In addition to the Nugget WiFi solution, Radcal is releasing the new Accu-Dose+ diagnostic X-ray meter for dose measurements.  The new Accu-Gold digitizer based device connects directly to any past or present Radcal ion chambers as well as Radcal Dose Diodes for individual or simultaneous measurements.  Utilizing the provided Accu-Gold Software, measurements of dose, dose rate, exposure time, pulse count, dose/pulse, pulse frequency and dose rate waveforms are shown after each exposure.
