Paper Abstract

Apart from providing the inherent benefits of digital imaging, a digital chest system should preferably be superior to large-size film with respect to diagnostic quality. Systems, demonstrated until now, tend to fail in that respect. Here we describe a system -under development- that combines the advantages of film (e.g. high resolution), area detectors (wide sensor dynamic range) and slit detectors (efficient reduction of scattered radiation, high contrast resolution and instantaneous image availibility). Thereby the system is low-dose, compact and operating at standard X-ray tube loading.
