Rapid 2013: CT and DR System

New versions of computed tomography and digital radiography software – efX-CT 1.6 and efX-DR 1.0—focus on improving speed, NSI X500automation and image quality.  Throughput capabilities have streamlined data acquisition control as well as extensive automation features in the system calibration and image acquisition steps.  Image quality has been enhanced through updated beam-hardening correction algorithms and new features such as vorteX. VorteX is an automated single-pass computed tomography scanning technique using spiral acquisition and reconstruction with a digital flat-panel detector. The technique was developed for the scanning of elongated objects that traditionally cannot fit into a single exposure.  The scan does not require volume stitching and the object length is only limited by the system scanning area.  This technology improves throughput by making more efficient use of projection data.
