Computer Tomography (CT)
Medical professionals are constantly pushing CT imaging equipment manufacturers to provide higher resolution images, which allow for more accurate diagnosis of a patient’s condition, while at the same time keeping X-ray dosage to a minimum, to reduce the risk to the patient’s health when undergoing a scan.
New generations of detector solutions from ams are helping equipment makers to achieve both of these goals, giving reductions in X-ray doses while producing motion-free CT images.
The reason for the ams detectors’ superior performance is that they reduce noise in the sensitive analog signal chain between the photodiode and the high-speed ADC. ams technologies also eliminate the dead time which is required in the operation of many ADCs, maximizing the linearity of the output.
