Ultrasound Power Meters
Ohmic Ultrasound Power Meters
Measurement of power output levels for diagnostic and therapeutic ultrasound equipment has become increasingly important in determining exact patient exposure levels. Since the Radiation Control for Health & Safety Act of 1968 and the 1976 Medical Device Amendments to the FDA Act became effective, all manufacturers of diagnostic Doppler ultrasound equipment are required to submit information regarding their maximum peak and average exposure level, beam patterns, and other pertinent information. Hospitals are responsible for regularly scheduled testing (every six months) of output power and safety to maintain their accreditation.
Ohmic have been manufacturing Ultrasound Power Meters since 1976 and are market leaders.
