A “PET scan” (Positron Emission Tomography) is a routine imaging test used by many hospitals to detect diseases in human bodies. Using a dye injected into a vein containing very low level radioactive tracers, doctors can analyse problems at a cellular level, giving more information than using CT or MRI scanners. This test can show how a disease is spreading or how it is responding to treatment.

A manufacturer of cyclotron equipment for the production of those isotope tracers picked TDK-Lambda Genesys™ programmable power supplies because of their known reliability and quality. The two models are rated at 2400W and are housed in 1U high enclosures, saving space, allowing the end equipment to be physically smaller.

TDK-Lambda offers a wide range of Programmable Power Supplies for industrial, test and measurement applications, click for more information.
