Tips for buying X-ray Generator

  • Facilities must select x-ray generator components for compatibility as an integrated system. It is specifically critical to choose compatible x-ray tubes and generators to fully utilize all features of both components.
  • Putting the x-ray generator too far away from the x-ray tube may cause distortions in voltage waveforms and timing responses caused by capacitance in excessively long high-voltage cables.
  • Routine radiographic, angiographic, fluoroscopic, and tomographic procedures vary in their kVp and mAs requirements, so all features of Radiographic-Tomographic Systems and Radiographic/Fluoroscopic Systems must be taken into consideration.
  • A procedure using a three-phase or high frequency x-ray generator needs lower kVp and/or mAs than the same one using a single-phase x-ray generator.
  • Facilities should add power installation costs to the project budget if three-phase power service is not available at the planned location.
  • Three-phase x-ray generators allow higher mA exposures at shorter exposure times, reduce motion un-sharpness, and produce higher-quality radiographs for many examinations.
  • Single-phase x-ray generators cause increased x-ray tube anode heating, and therefore restrict small focal spot examinations and reduce tube life.
  • Secondary waveforms that are single-phase, full-wave rectified provide the least efficient production of x-rays, which results in longer radiographic exposure times and higher patient radiation exposure.
  • The secondary waveform type determines the efficiency of x-ray production, including the magnitude of ripple and the ratio of average to peak x-ray tube voltage.
  • When choosing a Radiographic-Tomographic system unit, facilities should consider the secondary waveform type, timing capabilities, and compatibility with other system components.
  • If a heavy workload of abdominal imaging is expected, then an 80 kW generator should be considered.
  • When large patients are expected, particularly in Radiographic/Fluoroscopic system applications, higher power generators are needed.
  • A 50 kW-generator is sufficient if the generator is used predominantly for extremity and chest imaging.
  • Shorter exposure times can be used with higher power. With shorter exposure times, there is less chance of movement artifacts.
  • Low power x-ray generators are capable of the full range of x-ray exposures.
  • Power setting is the main factor when dealing with these x-ray generator units.
  • Facilities should select power rating and timing capabilities based on the types of examinations to be performed and the operating technique factors required with the type of x-ray generator selected.
