Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-10-050
Budget: 07/01/11 - 06/30/13

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Antiscatter grids currently employed on fluoroscopic systems are limited in their capability to control scatter. As a result, fluoroscopic radiation levels are higher for the average patient than they would be with a more efficient grid system, and higher still for large patients. Poor image quality often inc...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 09/01/07 - 12/31/09

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): It is known that conventional anti-scatter grids are limited in their ability to control scatter in general radiography. In recent years this problem has been aggravated by the use of less efficient (thin, high line density, low lead content) grids, and the increasing size of patients. As a result, radiograph...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 06/01/04 - 05/31/06

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Bedside radiography is an area of x-ray imaging in which there is no commercially viable means of controlling scattered radiation. This is due to the difficulty in aligning the focal spot with an anti-scatter grid. X-ray scatter therefore often reduces the contrast in bedside radiographs by a factor of 10 ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 08/15/03 - 04/30/05

It is well known that scattered X-rays significantly degrade image contrast in mammography. As a result commercially available mammography units all employ low ratio grids to reduce the effects of scatter and image contrast. However, conventional mammography grids are limited in their ability to control scatter, particularly for thick dense brea...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 02/01/01 - 01/31/02

DESCRIPTION (Verbatim from the Applicant's Abstract): Bedside radiography is one of the few fields of radiology in which there is no commercially viable means of controlling scattered radiation. This is due to the difficulty in aligning the focal spot with an anti-scatter grid. X-ray scatter therefore often r...
