Launch of new portable X-ray system

Image Scan, (AIM: IGE) specialists in the field of X-ray imaging for the security and industrial inspection markets, announces the market launch of the ThreatScan®-AS1 integrated portable X-Ray system for bomb squads and security professionals worldwide. Private demonstrations have already been carried out, and the system will be shown to the wider security community for the first time at the upcoming Intersec exhibition in Dubai.

The new system is the first to use an amorphous silicon detector panel, the same technology used in medical X-ray. Additionally, the system is highly integrated, with the primary display, computer, communications and power supplies fully integrated into a single, rugged case. With the addition of secondary tablet display, ThreatScan®-AS1 offers high flexibility in deployment to meet a wide variety of threat scenarios.

The system also incorporates a new, higher energy, version of the Company’s I-Gen portable X-ray generator.

The combination of technologies used in ThreatScan®-AS1offers exceptional X-ray imaging performance, advanced material discrimination, and Image Scan’s sophisticated image processing software.

Bill Mawer, Executive Chairman of Image Scan commented: “I am delighted to announce the launch of this important new system. Amorphous Silicon is a complementary technology to our highly successful linescan detectors and will allow us to offer a wide range of system configurations to meet customers’ individual operating requirements, technology preferences and budgets. It is a testimony to the work of our entire team that this system has been conceived, developed, and transferred to production during the pandemic.”
