IDC receives patent on dual energy imaging technology

CALGARY, Feb. 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - (Imaging Dynamics Company Ltd.) (TSX: IDL), the global leader in digital radiography for image quality and value, today announced that it was awarded the patent for a dual energy optically coupled digital radiography system. This is the 7th U.S. patent and one of many patents that have been awarded to IDC in countries around the world for technology innovations in digital radiography.

According to the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office: "This invention relates to an optically coupled digital radiography method and apparatus for simultaneously obtaining two distinct images of the same subject, each of which represents a different X-ray energy spectrum. The two images may be combined in various ways such that anatomical features may be separated from one another to provide a clearer view of those features or of underlying structures."

Robin Winsor, IDC's Chief Technical Officer and inventor states, "Dual energy imaging allows a doctor to view bone and soft tissue images separately, providing greatly improved diagnostic information. IDC's method of CCD based dual energy imaging is an advance over other methods because it captures all the necessary data in a single exposure, thereby eliminating patient motion. It does this while still providing the high speed and throughput that makes direct digital the clear choice over cassette based CR imaging."

"Our continued commitment to technological innovation is the hallmark of IDC and a driving force behind our global leadership," states Michelle Naismith, IDC Marketing Manager.
The inventor was issued U.S. Patent # 7,330,532 on February 12, 2008.

The patent has been assigned to Imaging Dynamics Co. Ltd. Calgary.
