RTI Dose Probe
For low dose rate measurements The RTI Dose Probe is an external dose probe designed to perform very low dose rate measurements, for instance, on image intensifiers. The probe is very small to avoid or minimize interference with AEC (Automatic Exposure Control) on X-ray equipment. This also enables it to fit into the table [...]Read more
The simple way of invasive measurements The RTI MAS-1 is an invasive probe for the measurement of mA and mAs. Together with Piranha or the Cobia SENSE, direct reading of mA and mAs, as well as waveform, are obtained. The probe connects to the mAs socket in the X-ray generator and to the multimeter. [...]Read more
RTI Light Probe
Designed to comply with the needs of QA in modern X-ray departments The RTI Light Probe measures the brightness on monitors with the same spectral response as the human eye. With a monitor and a lux adapter, the RTI Light Probe measures the brightness on monitors and film viewing boxes and the ambient light in [...]Read more
