  • Patent number: 11116469
    Abstract: A method is provided for determining a relative position of an object in relation to an x-ray imaging apparatus for creating an x-ray and a recorded image. The method includes bringing an object in a ray path of an x-ray into a first position. In a first recorded image, at least one defined geometry in and/or on the object is imaged. A measure for a change in the first focus point towards a second focus point is undertaken at the x-ray source. In the second recorded image, the at least one defined geometry is imaged. A distance from the object to the x-ray source and/or to the x-ray detector is determined based on the change in the focus point, as well as on the basis of the images of the at least one defined geometry in the first and the second recorded image.

  • Publication number: 20200268328
    Abstract: A method is provided for determining a relative position of an object in relation to an x-ray imaging apparatus for creating an x-ray and a recorded image. The method includes brining an object in a ray path of the x-ray into a first position. The x-ray is created with a first focus point by an x-ray source and a first recorded image of the object in the first position is created by the x-ray focused on a first focus point. In the first recorded image, at least one defined geometry in and/or on the object is imaged. A measure for a change in the focus point towards a second focus point is undertaken at the x-ray source. The x-ray with the second focus point is created by the x-ray source and a second recorded image of the object in the first position is created by the x-ray focused on the second focus point. In the second recorded image, the at least one defined geometry is imaged.

  • Patent number: 10393677
    Abstract: A method and an X-ray apparatus generate a projective X-ray representation of an examination object. Two projective images obtained from a phase contrast measurement are adapted to each other in respect of their representation format and a result image is generated by combining the adapted images. The result image allows extensive separation of different structures in the examination object that is used.

  • Patent number: 10363005
    Abstract: A method and an x-ray apparatus for interferometric 2D x-ray imaging, use a Talbot-Lau interferometer having at least one phase grating and an analysis grating for producing 2D images of an object to be examined using a phase stepping method. A stepwise readout of a detector is carried out continuously at a multiplicity of the phase positions of an interference pattern. Time sequences of readout interval data records which overlap in time are extracted from the readout data records, and at least one result image data record is calculated from an absorption image and/or a phase-contrast image and/or a dark-field image from each readout interval data record.

  • Patent number: 10028718
    Abstract: Data of a predetermined volume portion of an object under examination is captured by an x-ray system that includes an x-ray source and a detector. The x-ray source is activated to generate x-rays that emerge from the x-ray source, radiate through the volume portion, and after radiating through, impinge on the detector. X-rays impinging on the detector are captured pixel by pixel, in order to capture the data of the predetermined volume portion. With the pixel-by-pixel capture, only a subset of all the pixels of the detector is evaluated.

  • Patent number: 9925491
    Abstract: Waste treatment comprises heating it in a chamber to effect pyrolysis of the waste, introducing oxygen into the chamber to effect combustion of the pyrolyzed waste, and contacting off-gas from the pyrolysis and/or combustion steps with an oxidation catalyst to convert carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons in the off-gas into carbon dioxide and water and with a reduction catalyst to convert nitrous oxides to nitrogen and oxygen. Thus, domestic waste is treated in a batch process using catalytic converters to reduce the level of toxic components before off-gas reaches the atmosphere.

  • Patent number: 9662082
    Abstract: A method and an apparatus for creating a correction map for electronic correction of digital projection data from which it is possible to reconstruct a tomosynthetic 3D X-ray image. Furthermore, a method and apparatus are described for electronic correction of digital projection data. In order to allow particularly simple correction of digital projection data, the creation of the correction map includes a reconstruction of the lowermost layer of the 3D X-ray image to be reconstructed from the digital projection data, which lowermost layer corresponds to the detector plane of the digital X-ray detector.

  • Publication number: 20120227645
    Abstract: Waste is treated by pyrolysis at a temperature of from 400-700° C. and combustion at a temperature of at least 400° C. Off-gases are catalytically oxidized to reduce emissions. The combusting waste is periodically agitated with high-pressure air bursts to disrupt waste in the chamber and promote even and complete combustion. Air is introduced during pyrolysis to promote controlled flow of off-gas to the catalyst and air and/or water is used to dislodge accumulated ash at the end of the treatment process.
