SimXray is a computer simulated x-ray machine with all the attributes of a functional x-ray machine, except for the radiation, patient, machine, film, chemicals, processor, and supervisor.
SimXray produces centimeter measurements of the body parts selected, greatly reduces the expense of training technologists by allowing students to practice radiographic technique manipulation on the computer and when used as a classroom media tool, faithfully demonstrates the radiographic effects of manipulating technical factors, screens, grids, and patient thickness.
Users may manipulate mA (and Focal Spot Size), mSec, kVp, SID, OFD, Grid, and Screen Speed in an attempt to match the "ideal" set of technical factors to produce the best radiographic image.
SimXray faithfully reproduces the effects of technique manipulation upon the image. Grey scale, contrast, density, resolution and magnification are exactly as expected. Also includes calculated patient radiation exposure in mRem.
