Paper Abstract

The purpose of the study is to optimize the input and the output parameters of a dual energy CdZnTe semiconductor detector for chest radiography. The optimal detector parameters were obtained by maximizing the figure of merit, defined as the ratio between the square of the signal-to- noise ratio and the absorbed dose, for chest radiography.
