X-Tile sets a new industry standard as the world’s first off-the-shelf, tileable CT detector module. The 4-sides buttable module easily scales up from 32- to 256-slices, enabling 160-millimeter coverage at the isocenter and beyond.
X-Tile lowers the total cost, risks and entry barrier to introduce multi-slice solutions to the highly competitive CT market. The standard solution enables the instant start of detector system development halving the time-to-market and delivering remarkable cost savings.
X-Tile meets the most stringent performance requirements of the highest tier volumetric CT systems. The well-proven platform provides high X-ray image quality with fast scanning speed, and reduces the radiation dose for improved patient safety. State-of-the-art performance is enabled by a pixelated, ultra-fast ceramic scintillator, coupled on a high-performance BSI photodiode. The scintillator is made of high-light-output, ultrafast and the finest medical grade GOS (Gadolinium oxysulfide) compound. The characteristics of the most sensitive and ultra-low dark current photodiode are achieved through a unique BSI photodiode manufacturing process.
The active area size is 32 x 16 pixels, providing 512 channels that support simultaneous sampling up to a speed of 17 kSPS. X-Tile comes with a 24-bit ADC providing fast, low noise and high-resolution analog-to-digital conversion. Furthermore, the module features an adjustable full-scale range. The solution is compatible with digital LVDS and CMOS interfaces.
