Large-area X-ray camera
SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 14, 2009 – Rad-icon Imaging Corp. has expanded its line of very large area (VLA) CMOS x-ray cameras with the introduction of the SkiaGraph8 EV. The camera supports x-ray energies of up to 160 kVp and is designed to meet the rigorous imaging requirements of a variety of medical and industrial radiography applications. It features low power consumption and high detective quantum efficiency. Rad-Icon_skiagraph.jpg

The camera builds upon a tiled configuration of the company’s RadEye100 VLA CMOS image sensors to achieve a total active sensing area of 20 × 20 cm. It provides real-time imaging at up to 1.4 fps, or 5.3 fps in binned mode, 12-bit digital contrast resolution and 5-line pairs per millimeter spatial resolution. A choice of scintillators provides high sensitivity. A Gd2O2S (Gadox) integrated direct-contact scintillator converts x-ray photons into visible light that is sensed by the CMOS photodiodes. A thin graphite cover protects the sensor from accidental damage and from ambient light. Analog signals from the photodiode sensors are digitized in eight or more parallel analog/digital channels and then interleaved for maximum transmission across a high-speed parallel digital interface.

The camera delivers 2000 × 2048-pixel resolution and has an LVDS interface that integrates easily with image acquisition hardware. It is supplied with ready-to-run software and drivers and offers a variety of frame grabber options, including Ethernet.

Dynamic range is 72 dB, power dissipation is <5 W, operating temperature is from 0 to 50 °C, and pixel spacing is 96 µm. The compact camera measures 244 × 279 × 33 mm and weighs 3.5 kg.

Medical applications for the camera include general radiography, tissue biopsy and bone densitometry. It is also suitable for use in industrial inspection, nondestructive testing of plastics and composite inspection.

GLOSSARY
photonics
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
