Abstract

The invention provides a technique to cool a detector housing in an X-ray system. The technique includes a cooling channel to cool URP detector temperature due to outside fan assembly. A cooling fan is outside the detector housing. The cooling fan outside of the detector housing reduces the housing height and lowers height of a table The cooling air flows upward and then towards right direction in the housing box to dissipate heat and cool the detector temperature.

G2 TABLE DETECTOR HOUSING

FIELD OF INVENTION

The invention generally relates to an X-ray patient table and more particularly to detector housing in the G2 X-ray patient table.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION


Generally, X-ray patient table has a detector housing to hold the detector. The detector housing includes heat dissipation device, such as, cooling fans, to cool the detector temperature for normal status under a full patient flow. Conventional detector housing is shown as FIG. 1.

FIG.  1

However, the conventional detector housing faces issues with normal functioning. This is mainly due to a cooling fan, installed in the detector housing. Installation of the cooling fan inside the detector housing provides inconvenient service of detector housing. The detector housing height is thick and impacts table minimum height directly. Further, the detector tray does not extend for extremity examination.


A conventional technique includes detector housing with a reflective interior surface relative to a wavelength of fluoresced electromagnetic radiation, scintillator and a photomultiplier tube.

Another conventional technique includes micro fabricated, gas-filled radiation detector assemblies.

However, the above-mentioned conventional techniques are inconvenient and discomfortable for service, patient and operator.

Hence there exists a need for an efficient technique to develop detector housing, which fulfills usability requirement and ensure patient safety.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

The invention provides a design for detector housing in an X-ray table. The technique includes cooling channel to cool URP detector. A cooling fan is installed outside the detector housing.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

The invention provides a design for detector housing in an X-ray table. The technique includes cooling channel to cool flat panel detector, such as, an URP detector which is a wireless digital X-ray detector. A cooling fan is installed outside the detector housing. FIG. 1 depicts the detector housing assembly.
