Introduction
“The Little Genius” stands head and shoulders above all other densitometers when it
comes to performance, reliability and economy. The only hand-held scanning
densitometer in the industry with built-in scanning and single-point (spot) measurement
capability, it literally does the work of two densitometers.
D-Log-E curve generated by “The Little
Genius” without external software
Applications
“The Little Genius” measures and stores daily film data for up to 20 different x-ray film
processors for 31 days in its own built-in memory. Use it to generate and print control
charts and D-Log-E curves directly to a printer without using external software and a
computer. Set base-line (target) and tolerance levels for each control chart parameter
either manually or automatically by scanning and averaging up to 9 different film strips.
So smart, it reads not only our film strips, but “the other guys” too.

Sensitometer

DI
Nuclear Associates Model 07-417
Introduction
This compact, precision
instrument is ideal for
maintaining consistent, highquality film processing. By
evaluating control films on a
daily basis, the technologist can
identify processor variations
before they affect clinical
radiographs. Also, processing
conditions in multiprocessor
departments
may
be
standardized. In the past, this
was difficult in departments
using varied film-screen
combinations in different areas. With this sensitometer, proper exposure of either blue- or
green-sensitive x-ray film is easily accomplished, with no need for internal adjustments.
Nuclear Associates’ Hand-Held Dual-Color Sensitometer features a 21-step density wedge
with 0.15 OD increments. The 21 density-gradient steps are numbered for convenience.
An innovative, dual-color, electroluminescent light source provides precisely-controlled
repeatable exposures. The desired color is selected with a front-panel switch.
! Helps maintain optimum film
processing conditions
! Easy selection of blue or green light
emission
! Lightweight, portable, batteryoperated
Features
• Repeatability: ± 0.04 OD log exposure
from unit-to-unit
• Stability: ± 0.02 OD log exposure per year
at 10º to 45°C
• Numbered, 21-step density wedge
Applications
To make an exposure, the platen is raised and a sheet of film is inserted beneath it until the film stops are reached. The platen is lowered and
the exposure switch is depressed. An audible buzzer is activated during the exposure. To prevent double-exposures, a two-second delay is
engaged before the next exposure can be made. When battery replacement becomes necessary, the unit will not expose film. Battery life is
approximately 10,000 exposures.
Processor variations are monitored by comparing the control film to previously processed films. Speed, contrast, and base-plus-fog values
can be graphically plotted for easier comparison.

Portable Digital Thermometer
Model 07-402
! Affordably priced...includes a
detachable probe
! Displays
readings
minimum/maximum
! Hold/freeze function
Introduction
This hand-held thermometer is a battery-powered unit
with a detachable immersion probe. Temperature
readings appear in Centigrade or Fahrenheit with ±
0.5% accuracy. The LED display eliminates problems
that can result from the misreading of stem-type
thermometers.
! Auto shut-off
Applications
! Battery eliminator jack for a 9 volt
VDC converter
Detachable immersion probes are time-savers for xray departments that have several film processors. The
use of multiple probes, each remaining in a specific
tank, also eliminates the possible cross-contamination
of chemicals. This improved version of the digital
thermometer includes many convenient features and
capabilities. You can quickly and easily display the
lowest and highest temperatures measured by the probe
since the unit was turned-on. Our digital thermometer
also enables you to “freeze” the current temperature
reading on the display. The thermometer display can be easily illuminated, making it perfect for
use in the darkroom. You can also program the Portable Digital Thermometer for auto or manual
shut-off.
The Portable Digital Thermometer (Model 07-402) is a shock resistant, solid-state unit that needs
no adjustments to maintain accuracy. Calibration is traceable to the National Institute of Standards
and Technology (NIST)*. The unit includes a high-impact plastic case with a recess for storing
one probe, and is equipped with a power jack that will accept the optional AC power supply. The
jack should be used when the unit will be in use for extended periods of time (in order to prevent
battery failure).

More sensitive and responsive than glass
thermometers. Just depress the ON/OFF button...
immerse the thermometer... and a beep-signal
will indicate the measurement is complete. The
digital reading remains on display even when
the thermometer is removed. After the
measurement is recorded, turn the power off.
A convenient “memory feature” remembers the
last temperature reading, even after the
thermometer has been turned off. The long-life
battery will last for thousands of readings (about
300 hours). A Low Battery Indicator will be
displayed when battery needs replacing.

Digital Densitometer
Nuclear Associates Model 07-424
! Large illuminated surface
! Density range is 0.00 to 4.5 D
! Three apertures: 1, 2, and 3 mm
! RS-232 interface available
The Digital Densitometer is an
easy to use precision instrument
that quickly measures the optical
density of film. And with its
optional RS-232 interface, you
have the capability to
automatically transfer the data to
a computer for storage and
retrieval.
Constructed of rugged steel and
compact enough to fit on any
crowded worktable, it offers
exceptional accuracy (± 0.02
optical density). The optical
density value is displayed in bright
LED numerals on the detector
arm. The sample table is 6.125 x
10.50 inch with a 4.75 x 5.50 inch
illuminated section. It will
accommodate film up to 14 x
17 inch and provides ample room for positioning any selected area under the detector.
The detector is a hermetically-sealed silicon photodiode. The detector lamp is at full
brilliancy only during the actual measurement, thus preventing heating problems and
ensuring very long lamp life with minimum wavelength shift or other degradation. When
necessary, the lamps are easily replaced. The densitometer includes a five-step optical
density tablet.
