Test Patterns-Accessories : Patient Penetrometer Kit

  • Four High Purity Aluminun Plates
  • One Laminated Lead Stop Plate
  • Four Copper Plates
  • One Resolution Plate
  • Two Sets of Spacing Rods

The LMP Patient Penetrometer Kit provides the necessary patient phantom attenuation material to test the exposure rate output of any standard or digital fluoroscopic system. The kit is designed to work with almost all X-ray exposure or multimeter measurement devices.

  • Large Adult Abdomen
  • Child Abdomen
  • Adult Chest

The aluminum plates are used in combinations to simulate the different masses of a very large adult's abdomen, a child's abdomen or an adult's chest. Using all four of the plates represents 26 cm of water for the large adult abdomen at 90 Kvp. A child's abdomen or adult chest is simulated by using two of the plates. Each of the four plates are made of high-purity (1100) aluminum. Automatic brightness control at maximum output is evaluated using the lead "stop" plate. This plate is laminated to ensure the safety of the user.
