KA Imaging to Present Poster at MHSRS

KA Imaging’s engineer Steven Tilley will be discussing the benefits of single-exposure dual-energy technology for improved point of care diagnostic imaging at the Military Health System Research Symposium (MHSRS). The discussion is part of the poster session “Advances in Prolonged Care.”

“Despite the benefits of dual-energy systems, they are often restricted in terms of mobility”, explained Tilley. The poster examines how portable single-exposure dual-energy X-ray detectors can be used to improve diagnostic imaging at the point of care. “Unlike conventional X-ray, dual-energy systems can provide 3 different images – a traditional digital radiography image, a bone image, and a soft tissue image”, he said. “And unlike other clinical approaches for DE, our dual-energy technology is single exposure, making it possible to use it in a point-of-care environment and resulting in images free from motion artifacts”, he concluded.

The study will be presented in a poster at this year’s MHSRS conference in Kissimmee, Florida from September 12-15, 2022. The session is scheduled for Tuesday, September 13 at 10 a.m.

Earlier this year, KA Imaging officially branded its patented single-exposure dual-energy subtraction technology as “𝘚𝘱𝘦𝘤𝘵𝘳𝘢𝘭𝐃𝐑.” KA Imaging’s 𝘚𝘱𝘦𝘤𝘵𝘳𝘢𝘭𝐃𝐑 technology enables dual-energy subtraction, providing bone and tissue differentiation with a single standard X-ray exposure. It acquires three images simultaneously (DR, bone and soft tissue dual-energy X-ray images). The technology mimics the workflow, dose and techniques of state-of-the-art mobile DR X-ray detectors and is currently built into the Reveal 35C X-ray Detector.

MHSRS is the U.S. Department of Defense’s foremost scientific meeting. It provides a venue for presenting new scientific knowledge resulting from military-unique research and development. The meeting provides a collaborative setting for the exchange of information between military providers with deployment experience, research and academic scientists, international partners, and industry on research and related health care initiatives falling under the topic areas of Combat Casualty Care, Military Operational Medicine, Clinical and Rehabilitative Medicine, Medical Simulation and Information Sciences, Military Infectious Diseases, and the Radiation Health Effects. The MHSRS is an annual four-day educational symposium that draws approximately 3,500 attendees.
