On March 8, 2016, 21 members and guests of the Lewis and Clark Section met at Flying Pie Pizzeria to listen to a presentation by Nils Hase, Comet Technologies' Business Development Manager. Mr. Hase discussed the advances that have been made by x-ray tube manufacturers for tube longevity, safer exposure areas, and the ability to produce smaller focal spots through better cooling characteristics. These advances have hastened the advancement of digital radiography and have, in many cases, supported the replacement of gamma sources with portable x-ray tubes. Test Equipment Distributors and X-Ray Industries generously hosted the dinner for all attendees.
