ams OSRAM is a leader in computed tomography and digital X-ray for medical imaging. We design and manufacture unique medical imaging sensing solutions which offer outstanding precision, high acquisition speeds, low noise and ultra-low power consumption. This enables manufacturers of scanning equipment to produce sharp images while exposing patients to lower doses of radiation.
A CT scanner is one of the most powerful diagnostic tools available to medical practitioners. A scan produces 3D images of organs like the head, heart or lungs, and with a high contrast ratio between bone, tissue, blood vessels and other parts of the body.
A key component of a modern multi-slice CT scanner is the detector array: this senses the X-ray radiation which is partially attenuated by tissues in the patient’s body and converts them into a digital signal.
The design of the detector array affects its operating characteristics, such as sensitivity, noise, resolution and speed.
ams OSRAM takes its leading imaging sensing expertise forward to achieve an unprecedented level of image quality at lower doses, offering a range of high-performance solutions addressing both three-side and four-side buttable options, exhibiting low noise, ultra-low power, and high readout speeds.
Such solutions range from stand-alone analog-to-digital converters allowing maximum flexibility for our customers, to highly integrated ICs combining both photodiode arrays and readout circuits in a single silicon package, driving ultimate performance.
To complement the solution offering ams OSRAM also provides highly accurate 1D/2D/3D sensing technologies which enable best possible measurement of the the patient's exact position for initial calibration and on-the-fly scanning data corrections which lead to further enhanced image quality.
