Patent for Sale:

High quality, fast throughput scanners for medical imaging and large surfaces printed boards    

Superior performance for Computed Radiography (CR) in speed, quality, resolution at much lower cost than other CR and Digital Radiography systems


A novel scanning system for Computed Radiography that provides superior performance in comparison with other approaches. The scan system is characterized by fastest throughput, highest resolution and best known collection efficiency than can be produced with current technology.

Primary Application of the Technology

Medical Imaging, large surface printing, Laser direct imaging in the field of printed circuit boards, inspection of Printed Circuit Boards (PCB), Flat Panel Displays (FPD) and other optical inspections.

The Problem Solved by the Technology

The proposed technology improves the quality and speed performance of existing computer radiography systems at reduced cost. The technology produces image quality better than what is achievable by Digital Radiography systems and same speed and much lower cost.

How the Technology Solves the Problem

The scanning system for Computed Radiography uses multiple beams and a rotating lens. The technology is suitable for planar or inner drum scanning that can scan planar X-ray plate or inner drum with multiple beams. This technology provides ultra fast scanning, high resolution, at higher collection efficiency, which are all significantly superior to the current technologies.

Competitive Advantage

The technology used offers Higher Scan Speed, improved Resolution, higher Collection Efficiency, better Quality, faster Throughput and a much lower Cost than existing technologies.

Patent Summary

U.S. Patent Classes & Classifications Covered in this listing:

Class 359: Optical: Systems And Elements

Optical elements included in this class are: Lenses; Polarizers; Diffraction gratings; Prisms; Reflectors; Filters; Projection screens; Optical Modulators; Optical Demodulators. Among the optical systems included in this class are: Compound lens systems; Light reflecting signalling systems (e.g., retroreflectors); stereoscopic systems; Binocular devices; Systems of lenticular elements; Systems involving light interference; Glare reducing systems; Light dividing and combining systems; Light control systems (e.g., light valves); building illumination with natural light; Systems for protecting or shielding elements; Optical systems whose operation depends upon polarizing, diffracting, dispersing, reflecting, or refracting light; kaleidoscopes. Further included are certain apertures, closures, and viewing devices of a specialized nature which involve no intentional reflection, refraction, or filtering of light rays. This class also includes optical elements combined with another type of structure(s) to constitute an optical element combined with a nonoptical structure or a perfection or improvement in the optical element.

Class 358: Facsimile And Static Presentation Processing

Communication or reproduction of a static image or sequence of static images in which the local light, or density variations composing the image do not vary with time by a method or apparatus involving at least one of the following steps: (1) scanning a static image to capture an image-containing area by resolving it into an area; (2) communication of an image-representative signal or image-representative data over any supporting communication network; or (3) reproduction of an image-containing area in response to an image-representative signal or image-representative image data by reproducing a corresponding image area which at least one of the two dimensions is elemental, simultaneously or in a sequence. In this class, a facsimile system or method is a system or method for the communication or reproduction of an arbitrarily composed image in which the local light, or density variations composing the image do not vary with time, such as documents maps, charts, photographs, etc., but not motion picture film or video.
