What is dental radiology QA?
The American Dental Association (ADA) Technical Report 1094 and the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) TG 175 report recommend that a comprehensive quality assurance program for digital dental radiology should include every component of the imaging chain: x-ray source, x-ray receptor/sensor, and diagnostic display device. The goal of any QA program should be to provide digital radiographic images of the highest diagnostic performance with the lowest amount of radiation to the patient.
That is the goal of Dental Radiology QA
We provide a line of radiation measurement devices for the assessment of the x-ray source. kVp, half-value layer, exposure time, dose, and dose rate can be measured using the RaySafe ThinX or Solo Dent.
We also provide a radiographic phantom for the assessment of the x-ray receptor/sensor. Optimization of exposure parameters as well as measurement of dynamic range, spatial resolution and contrast detail resolution for quality assurance can be assessed using this phantom.
