SI-Toro® represents the next generation of technology for radiation detection and measurement systems. Data emitted by radiation detectors gets corrupted when bursts of radiation arrive in quick succession. SI-Toro® decodes corrupted data in real-time, dramatically increasing the speed and efficiency of radiation detection.
Applications of radiation detection include: medical imaging to recognise disease; security screening to identify explosives and other contraband; and the exploration for minerals and oil.
- Improved speed and efficiency of detection
- 2500% increase in data processing per second
- Overcomes 'pulse pile-up'
Status of Innovation:
Ongoing commercial evaluation and licensing discussions with US and European equipment manufacturers.
