Racon-Softracon

The purpose of this tool is to monitor the quality of the images provided by digital radiodiagnosis equipment.  The tool is made up of a RACON radiographic dummy and associated SoftRACON image evaluation software.  It incorporates specific modules such as the database module for tracking of the radiographic equipment under study, the module for communication with the hospital’s PACS network for the acquisition of images stored in the data management system, etc.

The tool facilitates continuous, flexible and objective tracking of the quality of the images obtained, this being integrated in the quality control of the radiographic equipment with a view to guaranteeing good quality images with as low a dose as possible, since it allows any anomalies in the operation of the equipment to be rapidly detected.
