Product Overview

The Proteus X-ray Tube is a component in multiple radiography systems. These radiographic systems are used to for imaging method diagnosis using X-rays. The systems work on the principle where high velocity electrons, when interacted with a patient’s body, their kinetic energy is converted into electromagnetic radiation. An X-ray tube is the component that produces the X-rays. It contains an anode and a cathode and a stream of electrons is produced by this X-ray tube. They are accelerated to very high velocities by an external high voltage power supply and it’s collide with the target anode in the tube. A beam is then formed and is focused on patient and X-rays emerging from the patient carry the image information which can then be stored on X-ray film. The X-ray tube has a width radius of 21 mm and it is provided with a housing to ensure safety. It offers a continuous stream of electrons, thus improving the quality of images formed.
