Detection Technology Introduces Off-the-Shelf Tileable CT Detector Module

November 13, 2017 — Detection Technology recently introduced the world’s first off-the-shelf, tileable computed tomography (CT) detector module, X-Tile. The four-sided buttable X-Tile detector module easily scales up from 32-slice volumetric CT systems up to 256-slices, enabling 160-millimeter coverage at isocenter and beyond.

State-of-the-art performance is enabled by a pixelated, ultra-fast ceramic scintillator coupled on a high-performance backside illuminated (BSI) photodiode. The scintillator is made of high-light-output, ultrafast and the finest medical grade GOS (Gadolinium oxysulfide) compound. The characteristics of the most sensitive and ultra-low dark current photodiode are achieved through the company’s BSI photodiode manufacturing process.

The active area size is 32 x 16 pixels, providing 512 channels that support simultaneous sampling up to a speed of 17 kSPS. The solution comes with a 24-bit ADC (analog-to-digital converter) providing fast, low noise and high-resolution analog-to-digital conversion. Furthermore, the module features an adjustable full-scale range. The solution is compatible with digital LVDS and CMOS interfaces.

Engineering samples of X-Tile are available, and the volume shipments will start in the first quarter of 2018. Detection Technology will demonstrate the key features of the X-Tile at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) 2017 trade show Nov. 26-Dec. 1 in Chicago.
