Development of a CMOS-based optical computed tomography system (CMOS-OCT) for 3D radiotherapy dosimetry

Optical Computed Tomography (OCT) was developed as a 3D imaging system for measuring radiotherapy dose delivered to radiochromic dosimeters. The imaging system reconstructs dose distributions delivered to a radiochromic dosimeter such as PRESAGE …

850-nm-peak high-sensitivity near-infrared-ray computed tomography scanner in the living-body window

In the near-infrared-ray computed tomography (NIR-CT) scanner, NIR photons are produced from a light-emitting diode (LED) and detected using a visible-ray (VR) phototransistor (PT) and an infrared filter. The LED-peak wavelength is 850 nm in the …

Dual-energy high-count-rate X-ray computed tomography scanner using a cerium-doped yttrium aluminum perovskite crystal and a small-photomultiplier tube

To obtain two kinds of tomograms at two different X-ray energy ranges simultaneously, we have constructed a dual-energy X-ray photon counter with a high-count-rate detector system, three comparators, two microcomputers, and two frequency-voltage …

Triple-energy high-count-rate X-ray computed tomography scanner using a cadmium telluride detector

To obtain three kinds of tomograms at three different X-ray energy ranges simultaneously, we have constructed a triple-energy (TE) X-ray photon counter with a cadmium telluride (CdTe) detector and three sets of comparators and microcomputers …

Über diese Zeitschrift

The journal constitutes an information platform connecting medical technology and informatics with the needs of care, health care professionals and patients. Thus, medical physicists and biomedical/clinical engineers are encouraged to write articles not only for their colleagues, but directed to all other groups of readers as well, and vice versa. By its nature, the journal presents and discusses hot subjects including but not limited to patient safety, patient empowerment, disease surveillance and management, e-health and issues concerning data security, privacy, reliability and management, data mining and knowledge exchange as well as health prevention. The journal also addresses the medical, financial, social, educational and safety aspects of health technologies as well as health technology assessment and management, including issues such security, efficacy, cost in comparison to the benefit, as well as social, legal and ethical implications. This journal is a communicative source for the health work force (physicians, nurses, medical physicists, clinical engineers, biomedical engineers, hospital engineers, etc.), the ministries of health, hospital management, self-employed doctors, health care providers and regulatory agencies, the medical technology industry, patients' associations, universities (biomedical and clinical engineering, medical physics, medical informatics, biology, medicine and public health as well as health economics programs), research institutes and professional, scientific and technical organizations. Health and Technology is jointly published by Springer and the IUPESM (International Union for Physical and Engineering Sciences in Medicine) in cooperation with the World Health Organization.

Safety & Security – Erfolgsfaktoren von sensitiven Robotertechnologien

Forderungen von Industrie 4.0 nach vollständiger Vernetzung der Systeme geben der "Robotersicherheit" einen besonderen Stellenwert: Hierbei umfasst der deutsche Begriff Sicherheit die – im Englischen einerseits durch Safety umrissene physische Sicherheit – sowie andererseits die durch Security definierte informationstechnische Cyber-Sicherheit. Dieser Fachbeitrag aus der e&i beleuchtet eingehend die wesentlichen Aspekte von Safety und Security in der Robotik.
