Reveal 35C X-Ray Detector
KA Imaging Reveal
A portable X-ray machine that screens for pulmonary health issues.
The Reveal 35C portable dual energy X-ray detector screens and aids in the diagnosis of pulmonary health issues including tuberculosis, lung cancer, COPD, pneumonia, and COVID-19. It is used in a similar manner to conventional digital x-ray detectors.
This product was selected for inclusion in WHO’s 2021 Compendium of Innovative Health Technologies for Low‐Resource Settings.

Reveal 35C uses a three layer stacked sensor design to produce three X-ray images using a single conventional chest X-ray exposure. The X-ray images can then be used to generate a conventional digital radiography, a bone subtracted and a soft tissue subtracted X-ray image, and lateral view dual energy X-ray images.
The device is intended to be used in a similar way as a conventional digital X-ray detector.

Enable bone and soft tissue images in a single X-ray exposure
There is an ongoing lung cancer clinical trial with 30 patients at Grand River Hospital and a second, IRB-approved COVID-19 clinical trial with 600 patients with Princess Margaret Hospital and University of Toronto that began in June 2020. The product has since been FDA 510(k) cleared and Health Canada approved and is available for sale in the USA and Canada.
Reveal 35C has also been certified under several performance standards.
Standard precaution with X-ray devices of safety factors such as radiation exposure should be taken
A laptop or computer is needed to operate the device, an anti scatter grid can be supplied upon request
