  • Tubes
  • Thanks to the rapid development of both the X-ray tubes as the detectors, we can image objects with continuously better resolution. (ugent.be)
  • medical
  • The most well-known application is a medical CT scanner for the visualisation of the inside of patients. (ugent.be)
  • But scanning is so expensive that when he first began creating these images as a graduate student at the University of Massachusetts Amherst and at Harvard University's Museum of Comparative Zoology , he mostly begged for time on scanners at Boston-area medical centers. (nationalgeographic.com)
  • system
  • 3. A system according to claim 1, wherein the X-ray generating means includes an anode and a cathode, means for maintaining the anode at a potential different from the cathode and means for generating a current between the cathode and the anode so that the rated power is sufficient to perform a scan, but less than 12 kW.

  • rotation
  • A method is disclosed for energy calibrating quantum-counting x-ray detectors in an x-ray installation including at least two x-ray systems turnable around a center of rotation. (justia.com)
  • At least one embodiment of the present invention generally relates to a method for energy calibrating quantum-counting x-ray detectors in an x-ray installation having at least two x-ray systems that can be turned around a center of rotation and are arranged having a mutual angular offset in a direction of rotation.

  • scan
  • To make a CT scan, a narrow beam of X rays sweeps across an area of the body, moving through a slight angle after each X-ray pulse. (britannica.com)
  • To perform a CT scan, you first need a scanner equipped for CT. (ugent.be)
  • However, the operational flexibility of these devices is restricted by their inability to record sufficient x-ray transmission data to reconstruct more than a single 5-15mm thick cross section of tissue during one scan and the relatively long duration (2-60s) for each scan. (springer.com)
  • different
  • By meshing X-rays from different angles into a three-dimensional image, the scanner gave Summers a clearer picture of this sea creature's internal structure. (nationalgeographic.com)
