A dedicated quality control program for Fujifilm digital mammography systems to support stable image quality in screening and diagnosis.
For digital mammography, aimed at enhancing quality and reliability
The program consists of the exclusive "FCR 1 Shot Phantom M Plus" and the "FCR Mammography QC Software/Guidebook."
*Approximately 10 minutes in the FUJIFILM laboratory, compared with 5 hours (approx.) using the procedures described in the IEC standard.
Dimensions: 263mm(w) x 198mm(d) x 24mm(h)
|Annual test||1. Image performance test * Additive lag effects (Lag) * Multiplicative lag effects (Ghosting) * Missed tissue at chest wall side (40mm in height)* * Visual and functional tests 2. Spatial resolution test (Magnification) 3. X-ray equipment performance test * kVp accuracy and reproducibility * Half value layer (HVL) * Collimation assessment * Radiation output 4. AEC system performance test * AEC density control function * AEC reproducibility * CNR exposure mode n * AGD exposure mode n Notes * * This test is only required in limited countries/areas.
