The West Physics Mammographic AEC Thickness Tracking Slabs are designed for the assessment of AEC system performance in accordance with American College of Radiology (ACR) and MQSA recommendations. They allow the medical physicist to confirm that the mammographic unit’s automatic exposure control (AEC) is capable of maintaining consistent exposure and image quality when the thickness of a homogeneous material is varied over a range of 2 to 8 cm and the kVp is varied appropriately for such thicknesses over the kVp range used clinically in the facility. Each slab set is precision-milled from PMMA (polymethyl methacrylate) and includes 3 pieces of 2-cm thick slabs and 2 pieces of 1-cm thick slabs.
Offering an excellent combination of low price and best-in-class build quality, each slab set is individually tested by a West Physics Senior Medical Physicist for correct dimensions, density, clarity and finish; and each comes with West Physics’ trademark Eternal Limited Warranty, which warrants all of our products against defects in materials and construction for their lifetime. Also note that our thickness tolerances are 40% lower than competing products, offering a higher level of consistency for your testing needs!
Stop paying ridiculous prices for your physics testing equipment. Call us at 866-275-WEST(9378) to order your set today!
