Luminos TF: Calibration and Distance Measurement

Luminos TF:  Calibration and Distance Measurement step by step

Luminos TF: Calibration and Distance Measurement Radiography 1. From postprocessing select the Graphics subtask card. 2. The system offers 3 calibration methods: a. Automatic calibration by the system. b. semi-automatic calibration using a known TOD (table-object-distance). c. Automatic calibration using a known distance in the image. 3. Select this icon for automatic calibration. 4. Draw a distance line. Single left-click the start point, release mouse, and single left-click end point. Click check mark. Measurements are based on 100 mm TOD. 5. If you know the TOD, select this icon once for semi- ? automatic calibration. 6. Enter the known TOD in millimeters. Click check mark. Draw a distance line. Measurements are based on the known TOD. 7. If you have a known distance in the field, select this icon again. Note: FD (flat detector) images must use this method of distance measurement. 8. Draw a distance line to measure the known dis- Distance (mm) tance, i.e. ruler. Enter the known distance (mm) in the field. Click check mark. Draw distance lines to 100: measure anatomy based on known distance cali- bration.
