NUCLEAR IMAGING MODULE EVALUATION SYSTEM

Redlen’s Module Evaluation System is a self-contained platform that enables design engineers to evaluate Redlen’s 40x40mm 256-pixel nuclear imaging module and to facilitate rapid integration of these modules into a customer’s nuclear imaging equipment and systems.

The Module Evaluation System includes;

  • A main system enclosure that holds a 40x40mm 256-pixel nuclear imaging module and has inputs for an external high voltage DC bias source, an external low voltage DC source and a high-speed USB communications interface.
  • A base platform with mechanical arm that allows precise position and height adjustment of a user-supplied radiation source.
  • Redlen’s PC-based evaluation system software that allows operators to configure and test the nuclear imaging module and to measure and record the module’s spectral energy performance and efficiency characteristics.
