QA Testing Apparatus for Rotating Tomography X-Ray Sources
A method and apparatus have been developed by researchers at UT Health San Antonio to allow easier, reliable, and frequent calibration of rotating x-ray source radiological equipment (i.e. computed tomography machines – CTs). The invention adapts the currently accepted method for fixed x-ray sources, the Half-Value Layer (HVL), to provide ac...

Non-Contact Specific Electromagnetic Energy Dosimeter
This invention is a method and apparatus for quantifying the electromagnetic energy absorbed by a surface. It uses the change of speed of an acoustic wave, caused by a temperature change in the surrounding medium, to quantify the electromagnetic energy absorbed at the surface. It can be used to characterize the biologically significant Specific Ab...
