Morgan Exhibits Radiology Solutions and Medical Applications at RSNA

CT systems, MRI Systems, Digital Radiography systems, RSNA 2014

December 10, 2014 — Morgan Advanced Materials high voltage (HV) and radio frequency (RF) capacitors used in X-ray generators, along with a range of metallised ceramics and assemblies used in X-ray tubes, CT scanners and MRI systems were displayed at RSNA 2014.

Manufactured from Morgan’s 36 and K77 dielectric materials, the high power HV and RF capacitors are non-magnetic making them suitable for use in medical imaging equipment. Additionally, the capacitors demonstrate low electrical loss and have a high dielectric strength to enable them to carry high electrical loads over a wide frequency range. They can also be custom-designed for the precise tuning of MRI scanners.

Offering high mechanical strength, vacuum integrity and good thermal conductivity, Morgan’s range of metallised components include RF windows, medical linear accelerator metallised rings and high power insulators for cyclotrons. Additionally, its high voltage feedthroughs have been engineered to maintain very high levels of vacuum and joint integrity via a robust hermetic seal, ideal for extreme operating conditions from elevated temperatures to cryogenic conditions.

Also showcased was a range of air-in-line sensors for the detection of air bubbles in medical dosing equipment. The sensors enable increased control over the detection of air bubbles in liquids, which, if undetected, could hamper the functioning of drug delivery systems, or allow bubbles to enter the patient’s bloodstream – a potentially fatal consequence. Enhanced AIL sensors allow the detection of the size of air bubbles in tubes, meaning sensors can be easily configured for different applications.

Morgan's Composites and Defence Systems business produces bespoke composite structures for healthcare applications; including a high strength, lightweight carbon fibre X-ray therapy couch top for oncology treatment procedures. Through precise fibre orientation in lay-up and detailed product validation, Morgan is able to produce components with low and consistent material density to optimize X-ray transparency to ensure high quality images and optimal consistency of the component throughout its service life.
