How to use scanner in a sentence?

  1. Laurent Chapon:

    The idea is essentially like a CT scanner where you would take an image of a person, a three-dimensional image of a person and you can slice through it to see the different organs, we... shine very intense light through (the scroll) and then detect on the other side a number of two-dimensional images. From that we reconstruct a three-dimensional volume of the object... to actually read the text in a non-destructive manner.

  2. Jim Ryan:

    Tamez says even if a scan shows an empty hidden compartment it could pay off down the road. The imager gives us the opportunity to, once we find that compartment, scan it. If its empty we never have to tell the bad guy that we found it and all we can do is start doing our research and putting lookouts on this particular vehicle so we can target it at a later time, said Tamez. Tamezsays it saves his team time, money, and officers lives. The alternative is paying for damages on a vehicle, the alternative is having your officers come in contact with fentanyl and possibly overdosing, theres just so many, so many secondary and tertiaryeffects that are negative that can be avoided with a device like this, said Tamez.

  3. Simon Cherry:

    So we are going to collect effectively more signal with this scanner than we do with current devices. And that lets us do a couple of things. We can either image much more quickly and collect our signal in 1/40th of the time so we can do scans in 30 seconds that currently take 30 minutes. Or we can drop the radiation dose significantly and do scans at a fraction of the radiation dose that we currently do them at.

  4. Toby Norman:

    Getting patient application right is absolutely essential, at Simprints we do three things to get that right. First we don't work with patient medical records, so we never store or hold access to patient data. That's all held by the organizations we work with. Second we never transmit raw fingerprint images, so we actually do the extraction process where we take a fingerprint image and turn it into a template. We do that on the scanner itself, meaning that the fingerprint image never leaves the scanner. Third we use the same level of encryptions that we use in online banking or financial transactions that secure any data that passes between the phone and the server.

  5. Kedlin Company:
