NONDESTRUCTIVE EVALUATION OF FIBER VOLUME DENSITY BY ULTRAFAST COMPUTERIZED TOMOGRAPHY

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1987 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Dr fredrick roder
Award Amount: $27,675.00
Abstract:
Computerized tomography (ct) affords a unique capability of measuring the fiber volume density of composite materials at any point within the volume. imatron, inc. has developed a capability of scanning composite structures rapidly and continuously using electron beam technology to replace the… More

Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Douglas P Boyd Phd
Award Amount: $500,000.00
Abstract:
Imatron, inc. intends to become a major supplier of high-speed dual photon absorptiometry (dpa) scanners to the medical marketplace for aid in the diagnosis and treatment of metabolic bone diseases, such as osteoporosis, which are characterized by changes in bone mass or density. the specific aim of… More

DEVELOPMENT OF A REAL-TIME CT CAPABILITY FOR ROCKET MOTOR TEST AND DISPLAY

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1989 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Fredrick L Roder
Award Amount: $57,434.00
Abstract:
Imatron has developed an electron-beam ct scanner capable of imaging objects up to 48 cm in diameter at an acquisition rate of 17 images per second in each of two adjacent planes at a resolution of 4 line pairs per cm, and at an acquisition rate of 9 images per second in a single plane at a… More

CONTINUOUS HIGH POWER X-RAY TUBE

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1989 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Dr Kristian R Peschmann
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
The management of mass casualty situations from natural disasters, major accidents, or warfare is jeopardized by the shortcomings of existing x-ray tubes used in medical (diagnostic) imaging: less than 12% dutycycle, short life, extreme fragility. this proposal suggests the solution in form of a… More

ASSESSMENT OF MATERIALS IN SOLID ROCKET MOTORS BY REAL-TIME CT

Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
Imatron has developed an electron-beam ct scanner capable of imaging objects at an acquisition rate of 17 images per second at a resolution of 4 line pairs per cm., and at an acquisition rate of 9 images per second a 7 line pairs per cm. resolution can be achieved. the scanning times in these two… More

A MYOCARDIAL BLOOD-FLOW ANALYSIS WORKSTATION

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1990 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Jonathan W Harman
Award Amount: $50,000.00

A MYOCARDIAL BLOOD-FLOW ANALYSIS WORKSTATION

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1993 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Jonathan W Harman
Award Amount: $498,203.00
Abstract:
Use of the imatron, inc., c-100 ct scanner to measure myocardial blood flow would provide cardiologists with a diagnostic tool that is faster, less invasive, less expensive, and has better resolution than currently available studies (thallium and pet). there are already 24 imatron, inc., scanners in… More
