Paper Abstract

An experimental study in the area of electronic detector technology for medical imaging applications is in progress, aimed at improving kinestatic charge detector (KCD) performance parameters such as spatial, contrast and temporal resolution. The purpose of this study is to utilize extremely high pressure gas imaging detectors, operating in the saturation mode, aimed at the reduction of the ionic signal pulse width thereby improving spatial resolution.
