DCF Test Tool
The Gammex 150K Mammographic Density Control Function (DCF) test tool enables a quick and accurate assessment of
a film-screen mammography unití»s Automatic Exposure Control (AEC) accuracy.
The Mammographic DCF Test tool can record up to eleven exposures on a single piece of film. This saves film cost, set-up
time, and processing time. Combining all eleven exposures on a single piece of film eliminates processing variability. The
resulting density read-out can be used to perform ACR Density Control Function Tests.
The Gammex 150K consists of a base plate with an engraved density scale and a sliding exposure plate with a small
window. By sliding the exposure plate without moving the cassette, the same film can be exposed at each of up to eleven
AEC density steps (-5 to +5). Lightweight, convenient, and economical, the Gammex 150K Mammographic DCF Test Tool
is an excellent addition to your mammographic QA program.
