Brain Imaging Research
Rad-icon can help research labs create high-resolution, cost effective digital stereo microfocal imaging systems much like the system at the DiCarlo Lab at MIT. Our CMOS x-ray cameras are an appropriate choice of technology for use in brain activity research because microelectrode materials are much more opaque than biological tissue. Images taken using Rad-icon's cameras enable the quick and accurate estimation of probe locations for in vivo research sessions.

Remote RadEye2 EV sensor - Part # RM1165
Shad-o-Snap Electronics Module - Part # RM1161
Our Remote RadEye2 EV sensor comes with a 2m DVI cable for added flexibility in placing the sensor head. The latest generation of RadEye sensors is also ~30% more sensitive than our previous generation of sensors. Although the sensor resolution hasn't changed, Rad-icon could install a higher-resolution scintillator such as Lanex Fine if there's interest in trading off sensitivity for resolution.
Our software interface is still the same as described by the DiCarlo Lab. Rad-icon has since added a feature in our ShadoCam Imaging Software that allows the user to switch back and forth between multiple cameras - a possible interim solution until the customer gets their own code up & running.
