|Safety methods and apparatus for low dose-rate radiation for medical and veterinary therapies|
Various embodiments relate to a microbeam radiation therapy (microbeam radiosurgery) system, including: a radiation beam source; a collimator with slits, wherein the collimator only passes a radiation beam from the radiation beam source through the slits; a filtering and limiting system; a source shutoff controller connected to the radiation beam source; and a detector configured to detect events requiring the shutdown of the radiation beam source.. .
|Radiation generating apparatus and radiographing system using the same|
In a radiation generating apparatus of the invention, a radiation tube having a cathode for emitting an electron and an anode for generating a radiation by an irradiation of the electron emitted from the cathode is enclosed in a housing container filled with an insulating liquid. The apparatus has a mechanism in which a voltage for allowing the insulating liquid to flow can be applied between the cathode and the anode in a state where the cathode does not emit any electron.
|X-ray fluorescence spectrometer|
An x-ray fluorescence spectrometer includes: an x-ray source which irradiates a sample with primary x-rays; a light condensing device which condenses the primary x-rays to reduce an irradiation area on the sample; a detector which detects fluorescent x-rays produced from the sample irradiated with the primary x-rays; a housing which accommodates the x-ray source and the light condensing device; a temperature sensor which is disposed in at least one of the x-ray source and the periphery of the x-ray source; at least one external-air fan which is disposed on the housing, and which can exchange internal air with external air; and a control section which drives the external-air fan based on temperature information detected by the temperature sensor, to adjust the ambient temperature around the x-ray source to a constant temperature.. .
