Imaging Methods in Medical Technology: Piezo Actuators for Precise Positioning Systems and Scanners

A number of imaging techniques are now increasing efficiency in medical research, diagnostics and therapy. Optical metrology is often the cradle of familiar methods, especially those used in automated processes, e.g. interferometry or microscopy.

Ultrasonic and magnetic resonance techniques are ideal for a variety of visualisation tasks. The various methods have one fundamental thing in common: they need fast, precise drive systems.

If the application so requires, they must also be as compact as possible or operate reliably even in strong magnetic fields. Piezoelectric drives, scanners and positioning systems are a safe bet here.
