The configuration with round ionization chambers to measure the dose area product has been developed for full integration into C-arm X-ray equipment. The ionization chambers are adapted to the respective device specification. The measurement electronics deliver the measurement results as an ASCII protocol via the serial interface to a host computer. The operation and display of the measured values takes place via the operating console of the X-ray machine.
For much easier installation of Dose Area Product meters for C-arm machines VaucTec developed a wireless model of VacuDAP - C the VacuDAP - C Bluetooth®. Herewith datas and commands may be sent without any cable instalations from the measuring chamber to the host computer. Functionality of the measuring chamber and flexibility in size are comparable to the well-proven VacuDAP - C.
