Diagnostic X-ray Water Equivalent Phantom

P+® X-ray QA Test Phantom

X-ray equipment should be routinely checked for optimal imaging performance and appropriate radiation dose. The P+® X-ray QA Test Phantom is a quality assurance and control instrument ideal for use by physicians and X-ray technicians to ensure superior patient care. 

“The objective is to get patient exposures below the 3rd NEXT quartile instead of above it and to maintain image quality appropriate to the exams.”- Computed Radiography (CR) and Digital Radiography (DR) State X-ray Inspection Protocol


P+® X-ray Quality Assurance Test Phantom

The P+® X-ray QA Test Phantom allows physicians and x-ray technicians to:

  • Compare the current X-ray tube radiation dose with the National Average Radiation Dose for film, screen or digital
  • Monitor the image quality of the X-ray system
  • Lower unnecessary radiation dose

The P+® X-ray QA Test Phantom is a simple method for the daily checking of x-ray equipment.

Using the X-ray test phantom constitutes an easy way to routinely check image performance and will be useful for quality control and outstanding patient care.

Benefits of Using the P+® X-ray QA Test Phantom 

Avoid unnecessary radiation exposure with P+ QA Test Phantom

    For the X-ray Technologist: Expose the P+ test phantom at the beginning of the day before the first patient is x-rayed. Use your x-ray techniques for the 23cm AP/LS spine exam and simply view the image. When you see the objects in the phantom image that you expect to see, you will have the confidence that the equipment is working correctly and will not cause unnecessary ionizing radiation exposure from diagnostic x-ray to your patients. Use the P+ test phantom to compare your imaging system radiation dose with the National Average NEXT value. Plus, our X-ray phantoms are easy to use and for documenting results.

    • Optimize exposure techniques and minimize radiation exposure with the P+® Phantom. 

    • Improve Standardization of EI values in Digital CR/DR. 

    • Ensure consistency of diagnostic-quality images to reduce patient radiation dose. 

    For the Physician: Best practices for radiation safety in digital and film-screen imaging are assured with P+® X-ray QA Test Phantom. Owning and using P+® provides your practice with a radiology quality assurance test tool that proves your properly x-ray calibration imaging system is performing at its best. You are assured of getting the best quality imaging your system can provide to aid in your patient evaluations. Your patients deserve this simple method of preventing unnecessary exposure to ionizing radiation. Using a radiology phantom or x-ray QA test phantom represents an investment in safe, quality imaging.
