RSNA 2019

December 1-5, 2019 // Chicago, IL
Booth 2100, South Building

We are pleased to be an exhibitor at RSNA 2019 in Chicago at McCormick Place — Booth 2100, South Building.

Gammex, a Sun Nuclear company, develops solutions for your evolving diagnostic imaging QA needs. We invite you to join us in RSNA Booth 2100, South Building, for a look at the latest solutions for QA/QC of CT, Mammography, Ultrasound, and DR/CR/Fluoroscopy.

Stop by to see our products firsthand and get a demo of the new RapidCHECK Dignostic QA Software.

Ask the Expert Sessions

During RSNA, we will host two integral collaborators and leading clinical users of our QA/QC solutions for CT and Ultrasound in our booth. Please plan to stop by Booth 2100 (South Building) during the following times to ask your QC questions.


Understanding the Behavior of Your Automatic Exposure Control System

Timothy Szczykutowicz, Ph.D., DABR, University of Wisconsin-Madison

13:00 - 14:00, Monday, December 2
- 15:00, Tuesday, December 3

Given the complexity of any single vendor’s implementation of AEC systems, understanding the behavior of these systems is not trivial. When tasked with optimizing protocols across many different vendor’s scanners makes, models, and software versions, a systematic approach to characterizing AEC is needed. During this session, you can:

  • Ask about how to address AEC challenges
  • Learn about initial experience using the Mercury 4.0 Phantom

Optimizing Transmit Focus Settings with Multi-Row Array Transducers

James A. Zagzebski, Ph.D., FAAPM, University of Wisconsin-Madison

11:00 - 12:00, Wednesday, December 4

Elevational resolution, or "slice thickness", can be a limiting factor in ultrasound imaging of breast and superficial structures. Multi-row array transducers can partially overcome this by varying the elevational aperture with transmit focus settings. The effectiveness is system and software version dependent. One tool that provides a vivid demonstration of the interplay between user-set machine settings and focal mass clarity is a spherical lesion phantom. During this session, you can:

  • Ask about ultrasound imaging challenges
  • Learn about experience using the Sono408™ Spherical Lesion Phantom
    • See how carrying the number and placement of transmit focal zones in system presets work
    • Review examples of multi-row transducers for use with newer ultrasound machines that have no user transmit focus settings
