When using DoseMate and ion chambers, how can one compensate for air density changes?
DoseMate integrates temperature and pressure sensors that allow for manual or automatic adjustment for differences in air density, e.g., changes in altitude.
When using the Excel Add-in, how can waveforms be viewed if the Auto checkbox was not filled in prior to making the exposure and measurement?
Select the manual waveforms icon in the Excel Add-in tool bar and then select the waveform (and how much of the waveform) to be viewed.
When you have a ZigBeeÂ® dongle, do you need a driver for WindowsÂ® XP or Vista to run the Excel add-in?
The ZigBee dongle is a HID, Human Interface Device, and it does not require a driver.
Why is a high sampling rate important?
Sampling rate should be 5 times the X-ray system frequency for accurate kv waveform analysis. The GE AMX4, the most ubiquitous mobile in the world, operates at 2 kHz. Systems like the Unfors Xi and RTI Piranha sample at around 2 kHz and thus cannot adequately sample an AMX waveform.
Why is the TNT 12000 or Software (Excel Add-in, Ansur Plug-in) not showing Flouro measurements?
Ensure the solid state detector is facing the tube and is perpendicular to the X-ray tube axis. For under-table tubes, this means that the solid state detector should be placed face-down on the X-ray table.
Why is wireless operation important?
Cables require time to set up and put away after use, which reducess, and can be bumped or stepped on during operation-causing erroneous readings, delays and other productivity challenges.
Will the kV still display if the dose is less than 5R?
A minimum of 500 mR/min doserate is needed to get accurate kV results.
