C-Thru™ Flood Sources - The Only Transparent Flood Sources
C-Thru’s source holder is made of transparent, durable plastic. The radioactive area is clearly visible, enabling the C-Thru source to be easily positioned on the camera head.
EZIP’s FeatherLite Co-57 flood sources consist of cobalt chloride uni- formly dispersed onto a thin substrate which is then placed in an ABS encapsulation and ultrasonically welded. Perflexion flood sources consist of Co-57 uniformly dispersed in a polyurethane matrix within a flexible coated-fabric capsule.
EZIP’s manufacturing process ensures that Nuclear Medicine customers will receive the highest quali- ty flood source available to perform quality control on gamma cameras.
Flood sources are scanned using a gamma camera. The camera images each flood source for parameters including differential and integral non-uniformity in accordance with ANSI N42.27. Visual checks are per- formed to detect any distortions of the active element and the outside capsule.
A leak test is performed on all sources prior to shipment.
EZIP’s flood sources are manufactured according to the following specifications:
CV ≤ 1.0%
INU ≤ 3.6%
FLOOD SOURCES ARE AVAILABLE WITH AN OPTIONAL CASE. IF A CASE IS NOT REQUESTED, THE FLOOD SOURCE WILL BE SUPPLIED WITH A LEAD LINED CARDBOARD CONTAINER.
