Koning Revolutionary Technology

It all started in 1989

The first version of KBCT was invented by Dr. Ruola Ning at the University of Rochester in 1989 and named as Cone Beam Breast CT.

The first generation system

The first Cone Beam CT lab system (CBCT1) was initially designed for 3D angiography imaging. It was built on a used GE8800 CT machine. The prototype was very successful in Cone Beam CT imaging and multiple studies went on with that system. It collected the first group of Cone Beam CT data for feasibility studies.

The second generation system

The second Cone Beam CT lab system (CBCT2) was initially designed for lung scans. Although still built on a used GE high-speed Advantage CT, CBCT2 was equipped with an upgraded x-ray tube and flat-panel detector, capable of scanning larger objects such as lungs, bones, head and neck region etc. CBCT2 was also capable of doing continuous scanning, which provided the features of dynamic imaging for angiography studies.

2002, Dr. Ning founded Koning

Koning Corporation is founded as a Delaware C corporation and receives exclusive license from the University of Rochester for Cone Beam CT and Cone Beam Breast CT technology.

2006, first prototype of KBCT

With the scientific and engineering experience from the previous cone beam CT systems, Dr. Ning and his group designed the first commercial grade Cone Beam Breast CT specifically for breast imaging.

This is the first time true three-dimensional, isotropic tomography images were introduced to breast imaging.
