Startup to develop new solid-state technology at UCLA for use in medical imaging
Date:4/2/2010

While today many medical-imaging needs are being met with traditional vacuum tubebased technology, large segments of the X-rayimaging market are poorly served, and there is widespread demand for both performance improvements and cost reductions.

Based on groundbreaking patented technology licensed from UCLA, startup company Radius Health is developing a lightweight, flat-panel X-ray source Microemitter Array X-rays (MAX) technology that has the potential to address these needs by enabling new X-ray imaging applications while lowering the cost of traditional applications.

The startup has been selected to move into the UCLA on-campus incubator space at the California NanoSystems Institute to develop a lightweight X-ray emitter employing MAX technology an X-ray source on a chip capable of delivering the same spectrum as traditional sources.

The MAX technology was developed by Gil Travish, Ph.D., a research scientist in the UCLA Department of Physics and Astronomy, and his colleagues James Rosenzweig, a UCLA professor of physics, and Rodney Yoder, an assistant professor of physics at Manhattanville College in New York.

The MAX technology works like this: Using an array of particle sources from microfabricated structures, parallel X-rays are generated uniformly across a flat panel. The MAX source, which can be produced using the current generation of semiconductor foundry processes, generates diagnostic X-rays without the need for fragile vacuum tubes and bulky, expensive power electronics and radioactive materials.

The technology has the potential to deliver advanced and potentially safer imaging options than are available with current commercial X-ray systems, and to extend the 'application space' of X-ray radiology.

"Moving our development activities into CNSI is a real landmark moment for us," said Mark Evans, CEO for Radius Health. "The access to the facilities and knowledge will greatly he
