Urals scientists invent low-radiation X-ray device

8 Aug '11
Scientists of the Institute of Electrophysics of the Urals branch of the Russian Academy of Science and production company DATA-CENTER X-Ray, based in Ekaterinburg, Sverdlovsk reigon, have invented a unique X-ray device with a decreased radiation dose, the Sverdlovsk Region Small and Medium Business Infrastructure Hub reports.

It is no secret that frequent X-ray increases the risk of oncologic diseases. That is why chest X-ray is only recommended to be undertaken once a year. At the same time X-ray examination allows to localize the disease without surgery.

The device, invented by the Urals scientists, allows to overcome the controversy. In this new unique X-ray device radiation is generated in single impulses, several nano-seconds long. There is no radiation between the impulses. This results in a ten times less radiation.

Another peculiarity of the innovation is that the device can be used during mobile examination in ambulance cars, during field medical examinations, as well as at home or in the office.

At the website of DATA-CENTER X-Ray the mobile X-ray diagnostics device YASEN-01 is described as light and compact Ц can fit into a car trunk; maneuvering Ц can be easily turned around; safe for patients and doctors Ц allows to lower radiation dozes by ten times; easily managed by one person.

YASEN-01 can be used in intensive care units, traumatology and reception offices, district hospitals, private clinics, ambulance cars, mobile hospitals.

The devices have been tested in the leading hospitals of Ekaterinburg, Perm, Kazan, Moscow and have received positive feedback from the specialists. The project was supported by the Sverdlovsk Region Small and Medium Business Infrastructure Hub.
