Medical Imaging and Diagnostics
Faster, Higher Resolution, Smaller Size, Higher Efficiency

Medical Imaging

Resolution is a critical attribute of all medical scanning devices, such as sonograms, CAT scans, and MRI imaging. GaN FETs and ICs can be used to increase the speed and precision with which these systems can conduct scanning measurements.

Medical Diagnostics

The high frequency capability and small size of GaN FETs and ICs are enabling truly amazing breakthroughs in medical diagnostics. Perhaps the most innovative medical diagnostic application enabled by the small size of the GaN FETs is the colonoscopy pill. This contains a miniature x-ray machine that, after ingestion, creates a 3D image of the intestinal track as it passes through the patient’s digestive system. The scanned images are transmitted wirelessly to a receiving unit placed on the patient.

The fast-switching capability of GaN FETs and ICs results in higher resolution scanning and imaging.
