Low cost digital X-ray detector

Pneumavision, ON, Canada

TECHNOLOGY SUMMARY

We have developed an alternate sensor to the industry standard PIN photodiode based on amorphous silicon technology. Our patent-pending sensor can be fabricated using LCD-TFT foundries and when coupled with our amorphous silicon active pixel sensor technology, can yield a low cost, robust, and high performance digital X-ray detector.

Primary Application Area: Medical Devices

Technology Development Status: Prototype

Technology Readiness Level: TRL 4

FIGURES OF MERIT

Value Proposition: A patent protected digital flat panel X-ray detector with 10X better signal-to-noise ratio at half the manufacturing cost of current technology.
