Dectris rolls out new hybrid photon counting technology

By AuntMinnie.com staff writers

December 2, 2015 -- Dectris unveiled its hybrid photon counting technology at RSNA 2015 in Chicago.

  • A low dose with a signal-to-noise ratio via a noise-free detection with a high dynamic range and no dark current
  • Radiation hardness for long-term stability
  • High frame rates via dedicated application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) and electronics
  • Native spectral information for color x-ray imaging
  • Excellent spatial resolution via direct detection

Previously, x-ray detection in medical imaging has mainly relied on the indirect methods used by traditional integrating detectors lacking energy discrimination, the company noted. The new IBEX ASIC senses every photon in an x-ray and provides the flexibility of two readout modes: a high-resolution mode to detect subtle details and a spectral one to add color information to grayscale radiology.
