Hamamatsu develops basic technology for world’s first dual-energy industrial-use X-ray CT systems


Hamamatsu, Japan – October 29, 2013 – Hamamatsu Photonics K.K. has developed the basic technology for its exclusive dual-sided scintillation detection (DSSD) method, which will be used to realize the world’s first dual-energy industrial-use X-ray CT system. Hamamatsu expects to license this technology or to supply subsystems based on this technology to manufacturers of X-ray CT systems.


Details of Hamamatsu’s dual-sided scintillation detection will be shown at Photon Fair 2013, the company’s new technology exhibition to be held from November 7 to 9 at the Act City Hamamatsu convention center in Hamamatsu, Japan.
