20120195410CLEANING APPARATUS AND/OR CLEANING TECHNIQUES FOR USE WITH A RADIOGRAPHIC EXAMINATION DEVICE - One or more techniques and/or systems are described herein for cleaning a portion of a radiographic examination apparatus whereon debris may accumulate. Typically, the portion being cleaned is within a scanning field of the radiographic examination device (e.g., within a portion of the radiographic examination device through which radiation traverses). Activation of a cleaning mechanism, or a portion thereof, may be timed to miss radiation emitted during a scan, and thus not interfere with a scan. Also, the cleaning mechanism, or a portion thereof, may be located so as to not attenuate radiation. If radiation is attenuated by the cleaning mechanism corrective techniques can be implemented to account for such attenuation.08-02-2012
20120243666LIGHTING APPARATUS FOR A C-ARM X-RAY MACHINE - A lighting apparatus for a C-arm X-ray apparatus is disclosed. The lighting apparatus comprises a housing that surrounds an X-ray receiving element of the X-ray fluoroscope and does not cover a receiving face of the X-ray receiving element. The lighting apparatus further comprises at least one light-emitting element positioned within the housing so as to surround the X-ray receiving element, the at least one light-emitting element being configured for emitting visible light downwards towards an X-ray emitting element of the X-ray fluoroscope. The lighting apparatus further comprises a focusing mechanism that allows for focusing of the light emitted, a fastener for coupling the housing to the X-ray receiving element and a power supply unit for providing an electrical current to the at least one light-emitting element.09-27-2012
20090213996X-RAY ANALYSIS APPARATUS AND X-RAY ANALYSIS METHOD - Provided are an X-ray analysis apparatus and an X-ray analysis method, in which a measurer can judge an area incapable of being analyzed in a sample with a concave-convex portion. The X-ray analysis apparatus includes: an X-ray tubular bulb for irradiating an arbitrary irradiation point located on the sample with a radiation beam; an X-ray detector for detecting a characteristic X-ray and a scattered X-ray radiated from the sample and outputting a signal containing energy information on the characteristic X-ray and the scattered X-ray; a narrow-range illumination mechanism and a wide-range illumination mechanism for emitting an illumination light to the sample to illuminate the sample; and a narrow-range observation mechanism and a wide-range observation mechanism for obtaining an illumination image of the sample, which is illuminated with the illumination light, as image data, in which the narrow-range observation mechanism and the wide-range observation mechanism include a narrow-range oblique illumination section and a wide-range oblique illumination section, respectively, in which an optical axis of the illumination light at a time of the illuminating is set toward the irradiation point in the same direction as a direction linking the irradiation point with the X-ray detector at a time of the detecting.08-27-2009
20100158198EYEWEAR FOR PATIENT PROMPTING - An apparatus for prompting a patient includes a structure configured to be mounted to a patient support, a screen coupled to the structure, and a projector located at a distance away from the screen. A method of prompting a patient that is being supported on a patient support includes adjusting a position of a screen relative to a projector, the screen having a surface, placing the screen in front of the patient such that the patient can see the surface, and providing an image on the screen using the projector.06-24-2010

20100202593TARGET PEDESTAL ASSEMBLY AND METHOD OF PRESERVING THE TARGET - An x-ray target pedestal assembly and a method of protecting the x-ray target from breaking down as a result of the extreme heat that is produced when an electron beam is aimed at the target to produce x-rays. The target is submerged in cooling fluid and is rotated by a constant flow of the cooling fluid over and around the target in order to dissipate heat. The fluid is guided by integrated flow diverters in the target cover. The target may also be protectively coated either in its entirety or along the electron beam path in order to further protect it from the heat of the electron beam impact or from breakdown as a result of attack of free radicals or other chemically reactive components of the cooling fluid which are produced in the extreme target environment.08-12-2010
