Smart X-ay Sources

AFFILIATION:   Stellarray Inc., Austin, Texas, United States

TECHNOLOGY SUMMARY

Track: Medical & Biotech
Area: Emergency/Disaster Relief
Tech Readiness: TRL 4

Tech Brief: Our smart x-ray sources have programmable x-ray pixels, to move the flux source electronically. We eliminate the mechanical gantry in tomography to make portable 3D x-ray imaging systems with no moving parts, faster speeds and lower cost, for military, emergency and emerging market applications.

FIGURES OF MERIT

Value Proposition: Field portable CT systems, particularly for head and neck trauma, remain an unfulfilled need in military medical imaging. Stellarray’s smart x-ray sources will be an ideal platform for the development of such battlefield portable imaging systems. The irradiator platform will be indirectly useful in helping to get Cs-1327 out of circulation, and also useful in field portable irradiation systems. The UV-C pipe (made of quartz) can help reduce the incidence of catheter-related infections in the field and in hospital.
