3 Things to Consider When Transitioning from Mobile C-arm RIU’s to Flat Panel Detectors

  While there are many viable alternatives to Image Intensifier CCD RIUs (II-CCD RIUs), Indium Gallium Zinc Oxide (IGZO) flat panel detectors offer an interesting and promising option as a replacement. These panels could offer an ideal mix of performance versus cost, especially in larger panel options. With existing factories switching to IGZO panel production,…

Which Flat Panel X-Ray Detector will Replace Cameras in Mobile C-Arms?

As discussed in the first blog in this­­­ three-part series, key factory shutdowns and general shifts in the X-Ray imaging market have lead to Image Intensifier (II)-CCD RIUs going obsolete. As CCD obsolescence becomes more prevalent in Healthcare and the dynamic imaging X-Ray market, the need to find alternatives is imminent. There are three flat…

High Full Well Imaging Supports Stain-Free Tissue Microscopy In Pathology

The main problem with the modern microscopy in pathology is that it requires expertise in staining to see the structures and composition of the tissue. While there is a solution in using Mid-infrared imaging to create virtual tissue staining, many optical imaging components absorb infrared light which makes this type of imaging incompatible with modern…

Moving from CCD to CMOS in Medical imaging: RUBY, the next generation Camera Lens Assembly for C-arms (part 2 towards RSNA 2017)

Next generation camera lens assemblies with CMOS image sensors for C-arm X-ray systems can improve image quality and reduce patient does. Adimec’s RUBY delivers full digital real-time 1k2 30fps imaging for Image Intensifier based medical X-Ray imaging systems. This is the second of a three-part series on Adimec’s new Ruby camera lens assembly (CLA) for…

Throwback Thursday – Advances in Industrial Camera Production with Controlled Environmental Conditions in Manufacturing

It is important to manufacture cameras in a conditioned environment. If there is too much dust, the camera could get contaminated. If the humidity is too low, image sensors could get damaged due to electrostatic discharge (ESD). Nowadays the room conditions in the factory are mostly electronically measured however in the past analog devices where…
