X-Ray

Our X-Ray vision systems are 100% compatible with RadIcon's RadEye1 and RadEye100 sensors.

CMOSVision X-Ray vision systemThe RadEye large-area image sensors are designed with extremely narrow edges along three sides to allow tiling in two dimensions, in order to achieve larger active areas. Used directly to detect visible light, or with a scintillator to detect x-rays and other energetic radiation, the RadEye sensors are the perfect solution for applications ranging from medical diagnostics to industrial inspection and scientific imaging.

The CMOSVision X-Ray vision system allows inter-connecting multiple cameras, each camera connecting to two RadEye1 and/or RadEye100 sensors, in any configuration. This way, multiple, modular configurations can be created in order to achieve large active areas and fully use the X-Ray sensors' performance.

Also, our X-Ray camera PCBs are fully programmable and come equipped with an USB 2.0 interface for data transfer and camera control, allowing the user to modify a wide range of parameters. A user-friendly visualization and control software interface and drivers are also provided, so that together with a laptop a portable and versatile x-ray imaging device can be put together.

Applications

CMOSVision X-Ray vision systems can be used in the following fields:

  1. Medical applications

    1. General Radiography
      The CMOSVision X-Ray vision systems can be used for diagnostic evaluation of soft and hard tissue conditions.

    2. 3D Dental Imaging
      Panoramic or dental CT imaging. Using one of the CMOSVision X-Ray vision systems equipped with sensor arrays, multiple images are generated as a X-ray source and detector are rotated around the patient’s jaw line and successive images are recorded for further analysis.

    3. Tissue Biopsy
      The CMOSVision X-Ray vision system can used in surgical settings to quickly analyze recently excised tissue samples and inspect for lesions in the margins.

    4. Bone Densitometry
      Using the CMOSVision X-Ray vision systems, bone thickness and density can be evaluated with accuracy, measurements being used to determine decline of bone mass for patients with Osteoporosis or other diseases causing bone loss.

    5. Brain imaging research

  2. Industrial inspection and non-destructive testing

    1. Automotive components and materials inspection
      Using CMOSVision X-Ray vision systems, components and materials used in automobile production can be inspected for fabrication and assembly defects, with a high degree of accuracy.

    2. Casting and welding inspection
      Cast parts can be inspected for defects and quality assurance, including the molds themselves. Welded components can be inspected for corrosion, formation of voids, and hairline cracks.

    3. Industrial computed tomography
      CMOSVision digital X-ray camera systems can be used to generate multi-slice images of objects that later can be used to reconstruct a 3D representation of the object.

    4. Automated inspection and machine vision
      As x-rays can be used to inspect internal components that are not accessible by standard machine vision cameras, CMOSVision offers X-Ray vision systems that take accurate, distortion-free images which are acquired directly into the machine vision software for immediate automated analysis.
      Such applications can be also used in food and agriculture products inspection, which can be scanned for density, size or pest control.

  3. Electronics inspection

    1. PCB and components inspection
      Our X-Ray vision systems can be used for inspecting printed circuit boards. Solder balls, broken leads, delaminating and defective metallization can be easily detected. Miniaturized electronic components can be also inspected for missing bond leads, die attach epoxy voids, component failures, and flip-chip solder joints.
  4. X-Ray Crystallography

    1. General and protein crystallography
      Applications as for example small-angle (SAXS) and wide-angle (WAXS) diffraction are also possible. Paint pigments in old master artworks can be also analyzed by measuring the X-ray absorption of fine structure (XAFS).
      The CMOSVision X-Ray vision system can be used to measure the X-ray diffraction patterns from crystallized protein samples. By using a large area, low noise CMOS detector, diffraction images can be collected in 1/10th the amount of time as opposed to the conventional detection instruments, at a fraction of the cost.
