Optimized modeling of powder-based x-ray scintillator screen for improved total efficiency by double-layer scintillator design (Conference Presentation)

Paper Abstract

Powder-based flat panel X-ray scintillator screen has been widely used in many medical fields for diagnosis and measurement. For the proper application in medical field, high dose usage and high image quality are required. In this study, double-layer scintillator design is suggested for improving total efficiency with using theoretical x-ray absorption model and Mie-scattering-based Monte-Carlo (LightTools) analysis. Optimized scintillator layer design would be proposed with respect to the medical fields’ sufficient resolution-functionality.
