Nucletron is planning to launch its new direct digital chest camera, the Oldelft ThoraScan, in the third quarter of this year. The Netherlands company has based its camera on slot-scan technology, which projects a 1cm thick, fan-shaped X-ray beam to a multi-linear CCD detector. Nucletron said that this technique automatically reduces the amount of X-ray scatter, eliminating the need for an anti-scatter grid, which absorbs most of the beam. The Oldelft can therefore reduce the X-ray dose by 40% compared with current systems which use a grid, said the company.
