Development of Dual Energy Radiation Detector
Yeo, Hwa-Yeon ;
Journal of the Korean Society of Radiology, volume 4, issue 3, 2010, Pages 5~11
In this paper, we are suggested development of dual-mode detector for dual-energy digital radiography. Design of dual-energy radiography module for commercial BIS (Baggage Inspection System) is used in the spectrum of the X-ray generator and detector for dual-mode features and radiological characteristics were analyzed. BIS suggestl on the image detector module being used to target X-ray tube to simulate X-ray spectrum and simulated spectrum to offer through the new radiographic characteristics of the detector modules were investigated. Using X-ray experiments with an increase in the thickness of the copper filter low energy detector (LED) and high-energy detector (HED) as the difference between the output signal increases. HED, especially in the size of the output signal decreases with increasing thickness of the copper filter was found.

Purpose : Diffusion tensor imaging(DTI) allows the visualization of fiber tract damage in patients with cerebral infarction. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the correlation between degree of NIH stoke scale and fractional anisotropy (FA) in patient with cerebral infarction. Material and Methods : 16 patients aged 36~77 years(male : 11, female : 5, mean age : 61y), diagnosed cerebral infarction by diffusion weighted imaging(DWI), underwent 24 directional diffusion tensor imaging(DTI). Patients had the DTI taken within 3days of stroke onset. Comparison of DWI, FA value on DTI were measured infarcted area and counter part of specific region of interest (ROI). And evaluation of differences between clinically improved patient group (n=9) and unimproved patient group (n=7) until 2 week follow up after development of cerebral infarction. Clinical status was scaled by NIH stroke scale. Results : Quantitative measurements of FA confirmed statistically the significant diffusion changes in the infarct compared with the matched-counter part region. In DWI, the infarcted area shows high signal intensity, however FA value on DTI was lower than normal brain parenchyma. The FA value of clinically improved patient by NIH stroke scale was 0.49, and the value of contralateral normal brain parenchyma was 0.41. On the contrary, FA value of infarcted area shows about 15% lower than normal brain parenchyma. But, the FA value of unimproved patient by NIH stroke scale represents a half those of contralateral normal brain parenchyma (0.28 on infarcted area vs. 0.56 on normal brain parenchyma). So, the FA value of unimproved patient group was considerably less than those of improved. Conclusion : It is concluded that the unimproved patient group after cerebral infarction showed much less FA value than that of normal brain parenchyma. The FA value of DTI may be one of the useful parameter to predict outcome of cerebral infarction patients.

Dysphagia is common and serious problems in post-stroke patients. The post-stroke dysphagia with aspiration is associated with dehydration, malnutrition, pneumonia, sepsis and death. Up to date, gag reflex and choking history used to decide the aspiration in clinical. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the aspiration and to choice the proper meal formation using by video fluoroscpic swallowing study(VFSS) with post-stroke dysphagia patients. 58 post-stroke patients and ten normal person participated to perform the VFSS with liquid type, puding, yoplait, rice mixed with barium(Ba). Two rehabilitation medicine doctors and a radiological technologist analysed the phase(oral, pharyngeal, esophageal phase)with video film, and checked the pharyngeal transition time(PTT). 38 patients showed abnormality in pharyngeal phase, 13 patients in oral and pharyngeal phase, 3 patients in oral phase, and 2 patients in pharyngeal and esophageal phase. 43 patients(65.2%) occured the aspiration, but 23 of 43 patients improved by the chin tuck position. Aspiration occured 34 patients in liquid type, 2patients in rice gruel and nothing in boiled rice. After VFSS, 13 of 23 patients change the intaking pathway from nasogastric tube(NGT) to oral, On the contrary with 3 of 42 patients from oral to NGT. Consequently VFSS is clearly effective to evaluate the aspiration with post-stroke dysphagia patients.

Spatial resolution is determined by the performance of x-ray optics used in the x-ray imaging system. A zone plate was designed for obtaining a high spatial resolution image at x-ray energy of 8.5keV. A spatial resolution of 80 nm was estimated by the ray tracing when an x-ray tube of tungsten targe was used instead of synchrotron radiation. The designed zone plate of outermost zone width of 40nm was successfully fabricated by the electron-beam lithography.

In this paper, a photovoltaic system is designed with PWM(Pulse Width Modulation) voltage source inverter. Proposed synchronous signal and control signal was processed by 56F8323 microprocessor for stable modulation. The PWM voltage source inverter using inverter consists of complex type of electric power converter to compensate for the defect, that is solar cell cannot be developed continuously by connecting with the source of electric power for ordinary use. It can cause the effect of saving electric power, from 10 to 20[%]. The PWM voltage source inverter operates in situation that its output voltage is in same phase with the utility voltage. In addition, I connected extra power to the system through operation the system voltage and inverter power in a synchronized way by extracting the system voltage so that the phase of the system and PWM voltage inverter can be synchronized. In the system of this research showed good results after being controlled in order to provide stable power to the load and the system through maintaining and low output power of harmonics.
