Dose Area Product Measuring System VacuDAP

DAP-meter, Dose-Area-Product-meter


The European Guideline 97/43/EURATOM requires the determination of the patient dose in X-ray applications especially with children and when using higher doses. The VacuDAP system for automatic measuring of the dose area product complies fully with this requirement. (IEC 60580) 


The modular VacuDAP dose area product measuring system offers various ionization chambers and configurations for a wide range of X-ray equipment. The VacuDAP measuring system is used to measure the Dose Area Product (DAP). This value is most suitable to indicate the patient dose in X-ray diagnostics.


The transparent ionization chambers fit easily into the accessory rails at the collimator. Adapted circular ionization chambers are used for complete integration into C-arm machines. All devices are equipped with a serial interface for transfer data files to a printer or a PC. Different printer, adaptor and PC software is available as an accessory.
