  • Patent number: 9208918
    Abstract: Apparatus for collimating an X-ray beam, the apparatus including a multi-slit rotatable collimator including a semi-tubular structure extending coaxially along a longitudinal axis and being formed out of an X-ray impermeable material, with at least two slits formed in the semi-tubular structure, wherein the at least two slits extend parallel to the longitudinal axis of the semi-tubular structure, a mount for rotatably supporting the semi-tubular structure in the path of an X-ray beam, and a drive mechanism for selectively rotating the semi-tubular structure about the longitudinal axis of the semi-tubular structure, whereby to selectively (i) position one slit in the path of the X-ray beam so as to tailor the X-ray beam to the width of that slit, and (ii) position a solid portion of the semi-tubular structure in the path of an X-ray beam so as to block an X-ray beam.

  • Patent number: 8971482
    Abstract: An apparatus for imaging an object comprising: an imaging device configured to image the object while the object is supported on a support, the support comprising a base for positioning on a surface, wherein the object and the support are stationary relative to the surface, and further wherein the imaging device is adapted to move relative to the surface, and hence relative to the object and to the support, during imaging; the imaging device comprising a housing having a bottom notch sized to accommodate the base of the support, whereby to allow the base of the support to extend into the housing during imaging.
