Advanced Imaging

From customisable, metallised detector tiles to linear arrays of detector modules, Kromek are enhancing advanced imaging technology globally with our Cadmium Zinc Telluride (CZT) based solutions in the Medical and Industry & Security sectors.

In the Medical and Industrial & Security sectors, Kromek delivers CZT based detector solutions to OEMs, as well as global research and academic communities. We provide a variety of detectors for various modalities, ranging from customisable configurations of metallised detector tiles, and ‘plug and play’ detector modules, to linear arrays with full detection capabilities.

The end-to-end process sees Kromek grow, manufacture, and process our own CZT crystals, producing the high-quality semiconductor components and detector solutions you need for your specific application.

With Kromek’s innovations in Advanced Imaging, we’re heading towards a future of enhanced security and significantly better patient outcomes, ultimately leading to more lives being saved.

Cadmium Zinc Telluride (CZT) was and still is a revolution in the world of science and medicine. Previously favored scintillator detector solutions and other alternate semiconductor materials (although still effective in certain applications today), do not operate via direct conversion, and require extensive cooling at room temperature. CZT, on the other hand, does operate at room temperature without cooling, and converts Gamma ray photons into digital signals directly. This, in combination with the small pixel size of CZT, results in a high energy resolution and sensitivity; two key factors rapidly progressing the state of next generation imaging.

Higher count rates, the potential for 3D spatial resolution and dramatically improved image contrast also maximise the information and the accuracy of such information gained by CZT-based detectors.

Grown to specification with variable sizes, arrangements and with/without integrated electronics, incorporating CZT crystals into your detection solutions is cost-effective, and opens the door to higher quality imaging. This further enhances the accuracy and confidence in security checks and diagnostic procedures.
