Spectra Cine SC-800 overview

  • 1Description

The Spectra-Cine Candela SC-800 PhoRad IIIA Photometer is designed for Radiologist and Radiographers application. However, the broad appeal of this meter is that it can be used by any photographer, industrialist, architect or planner wishing to achieve precise ambient light readings. This innovative, hand-held radiographic optical instrument has been specifically designed to measure ambient light intensity in footcandles or lux.

Why is this meter critically important to the medical and business industry? Correct and accurate diagnosis in hospitals and doctors clinics greatly depends upon the conditions under which radiographs and images are viewed. For clinics and offices that maintain delicate and sensitive equipment  (viewing boxes, image workstation monitors, image intensifier monitors), it is very important to know the precise ambient room illumination (the amount of light falling on the viewing surfaces) in lux. In addition, designers of office space often find it necessary to assure that all desk and work areas are evenly lit.

In an effort to reduce the rate of misdiagnosis (estimated to be as high as 30% by a number of research studies), the Federal Drug Administration, American College of Radiology (ACR), the American Cancer Society and the European community of radiologists have all adopted guidelines and standards for viewing lighting levels.

The Spectra-Cine SC-800 PhoRad IIIA Ambient Photometer is an essential tool for quality assurance of medical imaging at Diagnostic Imaging departments in hospitals and clinics.

A high quality meter for radiologists or anyone needing precise ambient light readings (in footcandles and lux) at Diagnostic Imaging departments or in hospitals, clinics, offices and work areas
Yields precise and consistent readings
Can also be used by photographers or professionals in the construction industry to obtain exact light readings for work areas
