Piranha Multi (657)

All you need for qualified diagnostics and QA on radiography, fluoroscopy, CT, dental, and mammography X-ray scans.

Easy & fast X-ray Quality Control

Piranha Multi – the complete instrument for QA testing in radiography, fluoroscopy, CT, dental, and mammography. The Piranha Multi measures and presents all parameters instantly and simultaneously. It measures kVp, Time, HVL, Total Filtration, Dose, Dose rate, and presents waveforms. 

With Piranha Multi you have a compact solution for fast and reliable testing. You can be sure of extremely accurate measurements that can be used for in-depth analysis.

Ocean software – quick and repeatable

Its compatibility with the Ocean diagnostic software provides quick and repeatable QA work. Ocean can perform instant real-time analysis during your measurements. Use your tablet/laptop as both an interactive display during the measurements and as a powerful analysis tool when you are back at the office.

All your measurements, along with the result and the report, will be stored inside your tablet or laptop; there is no unnecessary, time-consuming data transfer.

A complete QA solution instantly

The Piranha Multi comes ready-to-use with everything you need included. It is really an all-in-one multifunction meter. Connect to your computer wireless or via USB and you have a complete QA system!

Position Check function

The unique feature of the Piranha Multi makes it possible to check the position of the detector before measuring. By using the “Position Check” function, you can verify that the detector area is fully irradiated. Possible field inhomogeneities are also neutralized.
