When we develop our devices, especially our medical gamma/x-ray detectors we need something to image. This sheep skull, found while walking in Northumberland UK, proved the perfect subject for testing our gamma and x-ray imagers.
I am Dr Alex Cherlin, principal physicist medical imaging, and one of the biggest users of our DMatrix gamma-ray imager. This is a fully integrated photon-counting pixilated, 12-bit energy discriminating CZT detector/imager, its modular design enables a large field of view scaling.
The solid-state detector technology, cadmium zinc telluride (CZT), provides superior efficiency and energy discrimination capabilities versus conventional scintillation-based detectors. CZT based detectors are rapidly becoming the technology of choice in many of today’s most advanced medical, industrial, and security applications.
Kromek Group plc designs, develops and produces x-ray and gamma-ray imaging and radiation detection products for the medical, CBRNe security, Homeland Security and civil nuclear radiation detection markets.
