Pre-Clinical and Medical Research
Pre-clinicians and medical researchers have anticipated the arrival of detection techniques based on hybrid photon counting (HPC). This revolutionary technology detects every single X-ray photon to deliver the highest sensitivity, best possible image quality, and lowest patient dose.
Additionally, the spectral capabilities of the HPC detector offers pre-clinical medical research new ways of exploring and imaging established modalities, plus create new ones.
Targeting the Best Possible Image Quality
Combining a direct-detection sensor with a pixel size of 75 μm, DECTRIS detectors distinguish the finest details and achieve ultra-high resolution. That is essential for applications such as micro-CT, mammography, or digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT), where the smallest relevant micro-calcifications occur in the 100 μm range. The system’s modulation transfer function (MTF) shows nearly ideal behavior — far beyond that of currently available mammography detectors.
