Medical Radar: Coming Soon To A Hospital Near You?
By Paul Kruczkowski, editor
When I hear the words "radar technology," I tend to think about military target or threat identification, air traffic control, marine navigation, weather monitoring, or even the new automotive accident avoidance systems. Using radar for medical diagnostics, however, was not an association I would make — until recently.

Cutting Development Costs Of Dental X-Ray Equipment With The Aid Of 3D EM Simulation
By Guido Scheibl, Sirona Dental Systems GmbH
The main task in the development of an x-ray device is the placement of the high-voltage components in a predetermined volume with an efficient usage of material. Since the components are embedded in highly insulated oil, measurements during the operation of the devices are limited or impossible. Time-consuming and expensive iteration steps are required if the positions of individual components in the device are to be optimized. CST EMS allows the placement of these components to be checked and optimized during the initial design phases.
