Mammography Phototimer Consistency Testing Slabs - Model 014A, 014AD, 014B & 014F - Products - CIRS

Better than PMMA for AEC calibration

The American Cancer Society and American College of Radiology guidelines for the screening of asymptomatic women have made over 50 million women candidates for mammography.  In view of the staggering numbers involved, it is critically important that simple but reliable methods be developed to assess system performance and to assure consistent production of diagnostically useful images.

CIRS Phototimer Consistency Testing Slabs are designed for precise assessment of AEC system performance in accordance with American College of Radiology and MQSA recommendations.  BR-12 (47% glandular / 53% adipose) is most commonly used but other glandular equivalencies are available. Unlike acrylic, these testing slabs are manufactured with very tight thickness tolerances  and more accurately simulate real breast tissue over the range of energies used in mammography.

Features:

  • Assess AEC system performance

  • Comply with ACR & MQSA recommendations

  • Available in multiple configurations
