    Three liner stability experiments were performed at the Pegasus II pulsed power facility to determine the asymmetric variations in the material density of a cylindrical liner during an electro-magnetically driven implosion. The initial campaign consisted of three experiments, designated LS-1, LS-2, and LS-3. LS-1 and LS-2 were driven with a peak current of approximately 4.2 MA, whereas the peak current for LS-3 was approximately 6.4 MA. All three liners initially were 0.4 mm wall aluminum cylinders with a mean radius of 2.38 cm and a height of 2.0 cm. The inner surface of each liner was coated with a thin (18-23 /spl mu/m) layer of gold to aid in the determination of the position of the inner surface of the liner. Radial radiography was used to characterize the z-dependent and /spl theta/-dependent instabilities that were observed as the liner contracted.

The diagnostic consists of a compact, 108 J, A1-series Marx pulsed power generator that drives a bremsstrahlung diode radiation source. The modeling was done using a transmission-line code, BERTHA, developed at the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL). Model predictions agree well with experimental data. The calculations suggest that, as presently configured, the system efficiency can be increased.

  • A Compact Neutron Source for Research and Industrial Applications

    The use of neutrons as a diagnostic tool has become more extensive in radiography, non-destructive analysis, bio-medical investigations and other general research studies. Although most diagnostic neutron work has been conducted at large nuclear research reactors, there is a need for compact and semi-portable neutron sources. Such a neutron source can be based on a low energy proton linac and suitable target. Design of a compact, 100% duty cycle, 2.5 MeV proton linac that delivers 10 mA to a thick 7Li target is described. Calculated thermal neutron peak flux with an H2O moderator is 2 × 1011 n/cm2.s. The associated low gamma ray yield results in the availability of good neutron beam quality for radiography and other purposes.

  • Robotic system for dental subtraction radiography

    Dental subtraction radiography requires accurate repositioning of the patient and X-ray source in order to correctly diagnose decay, movement, or bone loss. Present mechanical repositioning systems do not allow the imaging of the teeth in the back of the mouth, and are uncomfortable for the patient. A new repositioning system that utilizes a six-degree-of-freedom position sensor and a robot arm with an X-ray source is proposed. A model for the system is given, and an error analysis is performed to determine the influence of sensor and robot errors. Experiments performed to determine sensor noise and accuracy are described. Further tests showed that there is no adverse effect due to the presence of metal work in the patient's mouth.<<ETX>>

  • Digital image processing for detection of wooden foreign bodies in plain radiographs of chicken thighs

    Contrast enhancement was studied to improve the detection of wooden foreign bodies in Emergency Department radiographs. Wood inserted into chicken thighs served as models of puncture wounds in the human hand. Digitized plain-film radiographs of chicken thighs with and without foreign bodies were processed with various contrast enhancement algorithms. Results from the two most promising techniques were evaluated by a physician with training in radiology, and computation times and subjective performance of these algorithms were compared. Use of these two techniques led to better detection of foreign bodies in the enhanced images than in the original radiographs.

  • The PHELIX pulsed power project: Bringing portable magnetic drive to proton radiography

    The PHELIX pulsed power project will introduce magnetically driven hydrodynamics experiments to the Los Alamos National Laboratory's proton radiography facility (pRad). The Precision High Energy-density Liner Implosion eXperiment (PHELIX) has been commissioned at Los Alamos. A small footprint capacitor bank consisting of four parallel, air-insulated, single-stage, marx units (U ~ 300 kJ) is cable coupled to a toroidal, current step-up transformer to deliver multi-megampere current pulses (tpulse~10 μs) to cm size cylindrical loads. In a sequence of tests the performance of each component (capacitor bank and transformer) was evaluated and compared to a computer model. The transformer coupling was observed to be k ~ 0.93. A series of liner implosion experiments has been performed in which an aluminum liner (R ~3 cm, r = 0.8 mm, L = 3 cm) was accelerated to a velocity of ~ 1 km/s. The suite of machine diagnostics included linear Rogowski coils and Faraday rotation for current measurements. The experimental diagnostics include B-dot probes, multi-channel photon Doppler velocimetry (PDV), and single-frame, flash X-radiography to evaluate the performance of the high precision liner implosion. Currently, work is focused on integrating PHELIX into normal operations with the 800 MeV proton radiography facility at the Los Alamos Neutron Science Center (LANSCE), to enable high-resolution, high-frame-rate imaging of hydrodynamic experiments.

  • Automatic bone boundary detection in hand radiographs by using modified level set method and diffusion filter

    RA (Rheumatoid Arthritis) is a chronic inflammatory joint disease characterized by a distinctive pattern of bone and joint destruction. To give an RA diagnosis, a hand radiograph is taken and analyzed. Hand bone radiograph analysis starts with the detection of the boundary of bones. It is, however, an extremely exhausting and time consuming task for radiologists, not only because of the complexity, but also because of the precision required for a correct diagnosis. Automatic bone boundary detection is thus required. The Level Set Method has been widely used in boundary detection. However, the convergence and stability of the level set are strongly affected by the speed function and the parameters of the level set, which often leads to either a complete breakdown or a premature termination of the curve evolution process, resulting in unsatisfactory results. In this paper, we propose a modified speed function of the level set for bone boundary detection in hand radiographs. And in order to preserve the boundary of an image and to reduce noise, we further apply diffusion filter to substitute Gaussian Filter in the standard Level Set Method. Evaluating the experiments using a particular set of hand bones radiographs, the proposed method worked well for almost all of the images that we used.
