X-Ray Film Changers, Sheet-Film
Definition : X-ray film changers designed to transport single sheets of film of a specific size from a supply magazine through a pair of intensifying screens to a receiving bin at a fast rate, e.g., several films per second. Typical sheet-film changers have five major components: a mounting stand, a film changer, a supply magazine, a receiving magazine, and a program selector. The operating cycle of the x-ray film changer typically consists of a transport period (i.e., when the film is in motion) and a stationary period (i.e., when the film is held still for exposure). Sheet-film x-ray film changers are typically used in radiographic/fluoroscopic procedures such as angiography and cardiac catheterization.
