The company is developing research into biomedical instrumentation, mainly in projects linked to the control of the quality of radiology images. The project intends, during the first phase, to compact an analyzing system of an X-ray beam through alteration to its acquisition hardware, looking to simplify its application in quality control programs in healthcare. In the compacting of the system, some micro controlling devices, available on the market, will be evaluated, in order to provide a connection of the acquisition module to a notebook. Furthermore, we intend to collect data with the intention of studying the behavior of the system with X-ray beams generated by electrical feed of half waves and full waves and to research materials, to build a prototype of an ionization chamber and to study its behavior towards the energy of photons used in radio diagnostics. During the second phase, the intention is to produce compact prototypes of equipment, kVp gauges, dosage rate, dosage level, exposure time, semi-reducing cover, built-in filtering, in keeping with market demands.
