Microfocus X-Ray CT System

Basic System to Achieve High Performance

System Structure and Basic Principles

The measurement target (sample) is positioned between the X-ray generator and the X-ray detector, as shown in the figure below.
X-ray fluoroscopic data is collected from every angle by rotating the sample 360 degrees, and computed tomographic images (CT images) are calculated.

System Structure and Basic Principles

Fluoroscopic Image / CT Image / 3D Image

 

MPR Display / VR Display

MPR Display
(Arbitrary cross sectional display)

Stands for Multi Planar Reconstruction.
Multiple CT images are stacked in a virtual space, and four images — a CT image, mutually orthogonal longitudinal section images, and an arbitrary section image orthogonal to the longitudinal section images — are arranged for display.

VR Display
Stands for Volume Rendering.
Multiple CT images are stacked in a virtual space, and rendered in three dimensions.

Easy and Fast CT Scanning

Intuitive User Interface

The new user interface features a simpler arrangement for intuitive operation.

Main System Window Displays the stage position, scan field of view, equivalent voxel length, and other information in real time (the yellow box), making it easy to scan images with the specified resolution and field-of-view size.
MPR Window Displays slice, oblique, and double-oblique images, enabling the easy observation of cross-sections.

Automated CT Scanning Function ANALYTICAL INTELLIGENCENEW!!

The new automated CT scanning function enables scan parameters to be specified easily.
Simply select the material, the desired CT image resolution, and the contrast level, and the system automatically optimizes the CT scanning parameter settings accordingly.

Obtain CT Images in Three Easy Steps

No calibration process is necessary before scanning. Scans can be started immediately after sample placement.

3D CT Scan Region Display Function

As the CT stage moves, the corresponding CT scan region is displayed and overlaid in real-time on the MPR display.
Based on the previous CT scan image, additional CT scans for areas of interest can be obtained.

Unique Functions

Advanced 3D image Reconstruction NEW!!

Advanced 3D image Reconstruction

It is possible to enlarge only the focused areas in images once acquired and perform the reconstruction calculation. High-magnification cross-sectional images can be obtained even in the works that enlargement ratio is difficult to be improved. Equipped with a high-resolution flat panel detector, clear cross-sectional images can be obtained even when performing reconstruction. It is not necessary to perform the CT scanning once again when performing reconstruction only.

X-Ray Fluoroscopic Image / CR Scan Image

CR Scan

To obtain fluoroscopic images with no distortion in the vertical axis direction, data is only collected from the centerline of the X-ray detector while the sample is moved vertically.

CR Scan

DICOM Conversion Function

This enables converting obtained CT image data to the DICOM format, the world standard for medical imaging.
This function is essential for analyses with medical imaging analysis software.
*Operation with all DICOM compatible software is not guaranteed.
*CT image brightness is displayed in 16-bit grayscale, and does not conform to Hounsfield units.
 A conversion function is provided for CT image brightness values via manual input.

Software Limit Function

The software limit function, which can be configured to suit the sample size, helps prevent collisions between the X-ray generator and sample.

Routine Inspection Function

The minimum necessary routine inspections are performed when the system starts up. A software wizard has been adopted for the routine inspections, so that the system can always be used safely.

Routine Inspection Function

Sliding Door Finger-Pinch Preventive Mechanism

Sliding Door Finger-Pinch Preventive Mechanism

A finger-pinch preventive mechanism has been provided to prevent pinched fingers when the sliding door is closed.

Collision Sensor

Collision Sensor

Installed near the X-ray generator, this collision sensor stops the CT stage in an emergency (sample collision).

Door Interlock Mechanism (for X-rays)

Double interlock circuits are provided on the sliding door.
X-ray exposure is impossible when the sliding door is open.

Door Interlock Mechanism (for CT stage)

This stops internal CT stage movement when the sliding door is open.
