Kromek to Collaborate on CT Scanner Technology

Kromek CT Scanner

Sedgefield-based detection technology developer Kromek has entered into an agreement with a US-based company to develop the next generation of CT scanners.

The business will work with Analogic Corporation to create Cadmium Zinc Telluride (CZT) based detector products for Photon Counting Computed Tomography (PCCT) applications in the medical imaging and security sectors.

CZT-based PCCT detectors overcome limitations inherent in conventional CT detectors to bring forward improvements in spatial resolution, radiation dose reduction and energy resolution.

The technology could result in improved image quality, while allowing early detection of illnesses such as breast cancer and heart disease.

As part of the collaboration, Kromek will integrate CZT sensors with Analogic's detector designs.
