Paper Abstract

Many general vascular examinations require a large field of view. For this purpose, a new 16" X-ray image intensifier has been developed incorporating most recent technologies. In operation, the radiologist will appreciate its useful view of over 36 cm, and its ability to zoom to 16 cm in four steps down. In spite of this large field of view, the tube is light and compact. Its small, 30 mm output image grants a high light collection efficiency with small-volume lenses. The use of high density output phosphor and a new stray-light-absorbing output window result in important improvements in resolution and contrast, especially on small objects. The overall performance are described in this paper.
