Corning, GE Healthcare to receive Technical Achievement Award from Ceramic Society
Date:10/14/2010

e fast and extremely sensitive Gemstone scintillator is composed of a special polycrystalline material that was discovered during a process in which GE Healthcare researchers examined more than 150,000 other candidates.

Fuller notes that X-ray exposure has been of great concern to health care professionals. "Gemstone's sensitivity allows for the first time lower-dose CT scanning," he says. Some radiologists report they have succeeded in decreasing the CT X-ray dose by 50 percent. The sensitivity also allows a CT system to nearly simultaneously collect data from two different X-ray energy levels, a feat that produces detailed density information of a patient's anatomy and tissue composition.

Also, radiologists using older systems have been hampered by CT images that have lacked definition because the patient moved during the scan. The unprecedented speed of the Gemstone scintillators, however, makes it possible to collect detailed information about tissue composition, even when there is significant patient movement.

The Gemstone scintillator has been incorporated into GE Healthcare's Discovery CT750 HD scanning system.

ACerS will be holding its 112th Annual Meeting in conjunction with the Materials Science & Technology 2010 Conference and Exposition (MS&T'10), which runs Oct. 17-21 in Houston.
