CP-B. The intensifying blue sensitive screens
Thanks to the hard plastic material Novodur, CP cassettes combine the features of reliability, durability, comfort and minimum weight. The cassettes are long-lasting and shockproof. Added to this they also provide excellent diagnostic results.
Lightweight plastic material
The hard plastic material Novodur makes the CP cassettes 25% lighter than metal cassettes.
The Novodur plastic feels warm and soft when touched by the patient. The corners are rounded off not to injure the patient.
The cassettes can be opened 180°, which facilitates loading and unloading. The countersunk relief dot on the cassette clearly indicates whether the cassette is loaded with film or not. A filled dot indicates that the cassette is loaded.
The CP cassettes are constructed to have a long life-length, a careful design and rubber corners to absorb shocks.
The ID window enables you to label the film in the cassette with patient data. Using dedicated patient identification equipment, such as CP ID, you can do this in broad daylight. The cassettes can be equipped with either a European standard ID window or an American standard ID window. CP cassettes without a window are also available for use with darkroom printers.
Optimal film/screen contact
The magnetic sandwich (steel foil on the tube side and magnetic sheet on the rear) extracts entrapped air when you close the cassette. This feature ensures optimal contact between the screens and the film.
The CP cassettes comply with the following international standards: DIN 6832, ANSI PH 1.49, IEC 406. Thanks to the use of a synthetic tube side plate, the total radiation absorption value is only 1,4 mm aluminium equivalent. This ensures that the cassette functions well within the boundaries set by the IEC 60406 standard.
СP В blue emitting intensifying screens
CP blue emitting screens cover the whole range of the common speed classes in radiology. For the 100 and 200 speed the phosphor component is calcium tungstate, while for the 400 speed barium fluorobromide is used.
СP В 100
Calcium tungstate screens suitable for applications such as examinations of extremities, joints and chest where a high resolution is of importance.
СP В 200
Calcium tungstate screens for general applications where an optimal compromise between speed, definition and graininess is required.
СP В 400
Barium fluorobromide phosphor screens which give a drastic dose reduction with no loss of vital diagnostic information.
CP screens are available in various types:
- Screens mounted in CP plastic cassettes
- Replacement screens for mounting in CP cassettes
- Replacement screens for various types of cassettes
- Screens for various types of film exchangers
CP screen sizes: 13x18 cm; 24x30 cm; 18x24 cm; 30x35 cm; 18x43 cm; 30x40 cm; 20x40 cm.
Cleaning of screens
It is of utmost importance for the image quality that the screens are kept clean. CP strongly advices to use special screen cleaner, which ensures a safe and thorough cleaning action, combined with electrostatic protection.
