  1. FFI: Few View CT for 30-300 Hz Fast-Frame Imaging of Large Diameter SRM Static Firing

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF182024

    Few-View Fast-Frame Imaging (FFI) employs a completely static configuration of several extremely compact inexpensive 6-Mev X-ray generators, each paired to its own two-dimensional X-ray transmission detector array. Each detector pixel is a fast scintillation-Cherenkov detector with high stopping power and low sensitivity to scatter radiation.These generator-detector pairs are housed in a strong, y ...
