Rad-X Medical Power Filtration System™ (Rad-X Filter)
The Rad-X Filter is a low pass, pi configuration power filter with transient voltage surge suppression
(TVSS) specifically manufactured for application with imaging, radiology, and oncology systems. It
effectively eliminates high frequency electrical noise and voltage impulses thereby dramatically reducing
the cost of service, which also means improved uptime and system availability.
Rad-X Nuclear Medicine Power Filtration System™ (Rad-X Nuc-Med Filter)
The Rad-X Nuc-Med Filter is a smaller version of the Rad-X Filter that is specifically designed for nuclear medicine
systems. It provides high-level protection from transient voltage disturbances and high frequency electrical
noise. These anomalies cause a variety of problems ranging from system disruptions to actual component

What do the Rad-X Filter Systems do?
During normal operation of the protected equipment, the Rad-X Filter will:
- Attenuate electrical disturbances generated by the protected equipment itself.
- Attenuate electrical disturbances generated by sources outside the protected equipment.
- Prevent electrical disturbances generated by the protected equipment from affecting neighboring systems that share common electrical wiring.
Article: Unexplained Radiology and Oncology Equipment Problems—Solved
Radiology and oncology systems are the most expensive to purchase and maintain in hospitals. Certain problems such as unexplained
system resets, intermittent image quality distortions, calibration drift, "no-problem-found" service calls, circuit board problems,
premature tube failures and other unexplained system downtime are common. In fact, many users have come to accept these problems
Industry experts believe that as much as 75 percent of electronics-based equipment disruptions and failures
may be attributed to power quality issues. Think about it: What would it mean to your hospital if you could
prevent 7 out of 10 equipment problems?
