Patents by Inventor Eickhardt Soder

Eickhardt Soder has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

  • Patent number: 4039812
    Abstract: An X-ray diagnostic apparatus having an adjustable mAs-relay for determining the exposure time. The adjustable mAs-relay is used for determining the exposure time, wherein the X-ray tube voltage and the X-ray tube current are varied in conformance with the fluctuations of the voltage supply. An operational amplifier may be employed, whose characteristics may, in a simple manner, be coordinated with the desired cycle of the mAs-product, in dependence upon the voltage supply. Additional auxiliary components for the voltage supply correlation are not required in the inventive arrangement.

  • Patent number: 3974387
    Abstract: An X-ray diagnostic apparatus in which the X-ray tube voltage is regulated through intermediary of the X-ray tube current. In the apparatus, a regulator is situated within a regulating circuit for the effective value of the filament current of the X-ray tube, and influences the effective value of the filament current for the purpose of correlating the actual value with the reference value which has been determined through the preset X-ray tube voltage. In the inventive X-ray diagnostic apparatus, on the one hand, the actual value of the X-ray tube voltage is compared with a reference value, and the filament current is influenced for the purpose of correlating the actual value to the reference value. Furthermore, the filament current which is required for a predetermined reference value of the X-ray tube voltage is also maintained constant preceding the beginning of an exposure so that, at the initiation of an exposure, the filament current already lies at least near to the correct value.
