BioPune Seminar Series Talk # 5

Taking technology ideas from concept to commercialization: The case of Retrofittable Digital Radiography Systems by Dr. Sreeram Dhurjaty, President, Dhurjaty Electronics Consulting LLC, and Co-founder, Jeevtronics Pvt. Ltd.

Abstract

During the last 10 years, retrofittable radiography systems have created a revolution in Radiography. These systems that are the thickness of screen films have allowed traditional “Analog rooms” to be converted to “Digital Rooms” easily and seamlessly.

This talk traces the development of the first ever digital radiography system, first developed by Eastman Kodak and now sold by Carestream Health. One of the primary inventors of this system is the Author of this talk.

The evolution of the concept will be discussed. This will be followed by the challenges in the various technologies that were needed to realize the product. These include mechanical challenges, power conversion, the scintillator and detector, automatic exposure detection, and wireless, to name a few. Other challenges include the effect of temperature differences on the image. Image processing and rendering techniques as well as image transmission will be discussed. The challenges of commercializing this technology from the research lab to a commercial system will be detailed. This system has been a trailblazer which has instantiated various companies into selling retrofittable radiography systems. Recent advances in this field will be detailed during the latter part of this presentation.
