New Veterinary DR Install in Rhode Island

November 6th, 2018|

JPI Healthcare Solutions is excited to share one of our most recent digital x-ray system implementations. Last week, some of the JPI team was on-site at a veterinary clinic in Rhode Island, where a new DirectVet DR system was installed. This digital x-ray system enables virtually any veterinary practice to [...]

High Precision Carbon-Interspaced Antiscatter Grids

October 31st, 2018|

JPI has developed high precision carbon-interspaced antiscatter grids to be suitable for Digital Radiography (DR) by adopting a precise sawing process. For systematic evaluation of the grid performance, we prepared several sample grids having different grid frequencies (4.0 to 8.5 lines/mm) and grid ratios (5:1 to 10:1) and established a [...]

Antiscatter Grids and Moire Elimination

October 30th, 2018|

Since the development of the antiscatter grid in 1913, a major problem has been the resulting lines that can appear in the x-ray image. This critical defect created a risk of misdiagnosis by physicians. In 1920, Dr. Hollis Potter devised a solution for this problem by finding a movement patter [...]

JPI Healthcare Implements DirectVet at KSU/AWL in Ohio

October 29th, 2018|

We’re excited to announce the successful implementation of a JPI DirectVet in Ohio. As part of its investment in support of its veterinary technology program, Kent State University at Trumbull purchased a DirectVet table and generator for its state-of-the-art medical and surgical suite located at the Animal Welfare League of [...]

More Frequently Asked Questions About Grids

October 29th, 2018|

When two grids have the same specifications, why are their transmissions different? The reason is that the interspace width and height is different. As the x-ray interacts with different amounts of lead and aluminum, its attenuation changes. Do standard tests cover everything with regard to grid quality? Grid characteristics change [...]

JPI Grid Optimization Solution for Bucky Tray Specifications

October 26th, 2018|

A very difficult problem for recent high-resolution digital x-ray detectors is that, as resolution goes up, so does the difficulty of eliminating grid artifacts from the image. This is a problem for mammography systems in particular, where resolutions are much higher than in general radiography. In this article, we will [...]

Frequently Asked Questions About X-Ray Grids

October 23rd, 2018|

How does scatter radiation happen? In general, scatter radiation is Compton scatter radiation. This radiation usually occurs when x-ray interacts with matter. It occurs in medium and high energy range. When do you recommend the use of an x-ray grid? An x-ray grid is recommended when x-raying objects that are [...]

DR Image Optimization with JPI’s Grid Solutions

October 23rd, 2018|

In Digital Radiography (DR), Moire is the appearance of wavy distortions in an image. It’s the result of interference between the antiscatter grid and the digital detector. Moire patterns are major physical effects that cannot be effectively removed by software. This makes proper diagnosis very difficult if not impossible. Historical [...]
