Tips for buying Spot Film Device

  • Some suppliers offer two or three focal spot sizes to accommodate the variety of imaging techniques and procedures.
  • Buyers need to look at the focal spot size of the anode; a smaller focal spot provides better quality images, but the larger one dissipates heat better. Therefore, smaller ones need a larger anode heat capacity than larger focal spots do.
  • Suppliers now offer x-ray tubes with anode heat capacities over 2,000,000 HU and heat dissipation rates of 900,000 HU/min.
  • Advanced interventional procedures requiring longer imaging times would benefit the most from high heat capacity tubes.
  • The minimum anode heat capacity should be 1,000,000 heat units.
  • Using a higher anode heat capacity allows for longer fluoroscopy runs. It also provides a higher overall output, and extends x-ray tube life.
  • To help dissipate the heat, rotating and larger diameter anodes may be used, as well as circulated liquid cooling systems and ceramic tube envelopes.
  • Facilities should also consider the heat dissipation rate and the heat capacity of the x-ray tube anode. Only 0.2% of the electrical energy delivered to the tube is converted to x-rays, and the rest is radiated as heat - which will destroy the anode if not quickly dissipated.
  • Facilities need to carefully consider their needs when selecting the x-ray generator. The available generators that are commonly used for cardiac imaging include: three phase, 12 pulse, high frequency, and constant-potential generators. All can provide the high power, direct current, or very low ripple waveform required for cinefluorography. Space-constrained areas would benefit from high frequency generators, which are smaller and easier to install.
  • When using larger image intensifiers, more anatomy can be viewed in one image.
  • Manufacturers offer various longitudinal and lateral table travels. When deciding on table travel parameters, positioning the patient for various procedures is a major consideration.
  • Certain procedures, such as cervical myelography, can benefit from a 90
  • Tables usually offer a 90
  • The main consideration for buyers should be the table tilt.
  • Facilities should consider the types of procedures to be performed and determine the table tilt, travel, image intensifier size, and image processing methods to best suit those procedures.
