Paper Abstract

We propose a scanning slit device for chest radiography that employs multiple scanning slits and a large area image intensifier. A novel technique for optical collimation of the light signal resulting from scattered radiation is performed at the output of the image intensifier, prior to digitization, with a high resolution CCD camera. Preliminary camera dark current measurements show that cooling of the CCD camera electronics will be necessary. Preliminary experiments indicate that this method of optical collimation is feasible.
