Medical CCD Camera
- Sunday, 01 January 2006
Designed for medical applications, the TrueFrame FT50M CCD image sensor from DALSA (Waterloo, ON, Canada) comes in a 1k × 1k-pixel array with 5.6 × 5.6-μm square pixels. Combined with high linear dynamic range of 67 dB, high sensitivity, and vertical anti-blooming, the camera has high-contrast and greater detail retention in both dark and light areas of images. The camera operates at up to 100 fps and comes in a ½" size, delivering all of the imaging performance of a traditional 2⁄3" sensor. This monochrome frame transfer image sensor has an optical size of 5.7 × 5.7 mm and is designed to meet the needs of the medical and industrial markets in applications such as medical X-ray imaging, digital microscopy, and industrial inspection.
