Signify Premium Insight: Blurring Boundaries: CT, X-Ray and KA Imaging
Published: May 10, 2022
Canadian X-ray detector manufacturer KA Imaging recently announced that it is investing almost $1.5m in the development of what it claims is the world’s first dual-energy mobile X-ray system.
The move marks a shift for the vendor, which has hitherto only produced flat panel detectors for medical applications. As such, the new system will utilise its own Reveal 35C dual-energy X-ray detector. This will enable the system to create three images in a single exposure. As well as a standard X-ray, a soft tissue image without bone, and a bone image without soft tissue are also captured simultaneously.
