Amorphous Silicon Flat Panel Technology Provides Digital Images of the Heart, Replacing Conventional Image Intensifier Tube-Based Systems
Sarnoff will use fiber optics to couple a new active pixel CMOS image sensor, with 100X the dynamic range of conventional imagers, to the LEOS Gated, Unfilmed, Halo-free image intensifier.
It utilizes a highly efficient cesium iodide scintillator deposited directly on an amorphous silicon TFT array, and is designed to replace the bulkier image intensifier (II) / charge coupled device (CCD) camera systems generally used for creating digital images of anatomy that is in motion.
For instance, in the 1960s, company scientists developed the first image intensifier to use cesium iodide as a scintillator for improved X-ray sensitivity; it is still being used today.
The directorate has been working for about 15 years to develop digital alternatives to image intensifiers, and Reago believes a digital device could be ready for fielding as early as three years down the road.
This innovative technology allows completely new imaging possibilities for mobile C-arms with image intensifier in vascular surgery.
The Sil-2 image intensifiers are triggered synchronously at high speed and allow the fast framing rates and short exposure times prevalent in recording high-speed technological events.
Moreover, FPDs provide improved, distortion-free images in comparison to image intensifiers.
In a separate appeal, the mosque has raised another pounds 50,000 which has been spent on a pounds 16,000 intensive care unit and two image intensifiers for Mansehra hospital.
Traditional night-vision scopes use image intensifiers and photocathode tubes to convert light into electrons, which are projected on a phosphor screen for viewing.
Automated capabilities can be further enhanced with optional pan/tilt/zoom cameras, thermal infrared cameras, visible or near-infrared illuminators, and image intensifiers for long-range night vision with conventional cameras.
The avalanches give very little light, so image intensifiers made by IT&T at a cost of $125,000 each will amplify the light 4,000 times.
