Often referred to as “Interventional Imaging,” CV technology creates continuous, real time x-ray images of the movement of a body part, instrument or contrast agent. It is used for imaging during surgical, orthopedic and emergency care procedures such as catheter insertion, placement of stents and angiograms.
Cooling for the x-ray tube and precise temperature control of imaging detectors are extremely important for system reliability and imaging performance during procedures to address heart diseases. A potential failure would put the patient at high risk and cause damage to the system.
Custom Liquid Cooling Systems
The X-Ray tube in a CV system require a liquid cooling system for bulk heat removal while detectors need precise temperature control. Laird Thermal Systems designs both oil- and water-based cooling systems to ensure proper operation.
