X-ray aperture control for computed tomography scanners | High-resolution X linear axis for drastically reduced X-ray dose
Laboratory / Analytics
Smallest dose with excellent image quality
This aperture control sets completely new standards in computed tomography by providing very high-resolution and low-noise images at an outstanding low radiation dose. When the X-ray source is rotated, the motion unit moves the X-ray apertures so that the X-ray beam can be adjusted to the minimum required radiation dose. In use, the assembly itself is moved continuously in a circular path around the patient. A particular challenge was the high acceleration transverse to the direction of movement caused by the rotation on a large diameter. This additional load requires a particularly stable assembly with minimal room for error.
Lowest stress on patients
Highest livetime and perfect suitability for all patient groups
For specific medical issues, you cannot operate without a computed tomography scanner. This has to fulfill the highest requirements on the system in terms of functional safety, reliability and patient suitability. In particular, if a diagnosis of newborns cannot be made with certainty without CT, it must be possible to reduce radiation exposure as much as possible. Even with severely obese patients, very good images and also low-contrast images can be produced with an extremely low dose.
