Novel X-ray System
Conventional medical X-ray images are adequate for distinguishing between regions with significantly different density such as that between bone and surrounding tissue. The contrast however, is not sufficient to distinguish regions of similar density, such as tumours within healthy tissue etc. STFC’s patented X-ray technology that simultaneou...

Imaging Sensor (3 Side Buttable)
For some imaging applications, such as medical X-ray imaging and satellite imaging, the detecting area has to be large and can only be covered by tiling several smaller detector units preferably in a 3-side buttable fashion, which poses many readout and addressing issues. The following novel STFC technology overcomes challenges posed by such a desi...

Multi-TEDDI 3D X-Ray Imaging
This invention relates to a tomographic energy dispersive diffraction imaging system (TEDDI). Whilst conventional tomographic imaging systems rely on absorptive or spectroscopic data of the subject, TEDDI provides diffraction data in combination with either absorption or spectroscopic data. As an example, the diffraction pattern of a sample will sh...
