After the London Underground bombings it became clear that being able to x-ray suspicious packages was a priority in the fight against terrorism.

Scanna have recently launched their SCANWEDGE device that is compact and robust enough to take high quality x-rays even in confined spaces. With a flat imaging area of 25cm x 33 cm, SCANWEDGE provides 50% more coverage than other conventional portable x-ray systems in its class and can be supplied in a single rugged transport case.

For the safety of operators and others in the vicinity, SCANWEDGE is used with the well tried and tested Golden x-ray generators, and does not rely on hazardous generators containing pressurized or toxic gases. For speed and safety, SCANWEDGE images are sent immediately to a laptop so that operators do not have to return to a potential suspect bomb to retrieve film or imaging plates.
