Paper Abstract

A device utilizing a fluorescent screen was fabricated to assist in the evaluation of x-ray beam alignment of fluoroscopic systems. This device is employed for routine equipment checks and adjustments of the following physical factors: (1) alignment of the x-ray beam with respect to the image intensifier (and television chain), (2) field size congruence with the spot filming device and/or the image intensifier, and (3) source-to-tabletop distance (S.T.D.). The description and operational procedure of this device are demonstrated in detail.
