Paper Abstract

A beam equalization system has been developed for a recently introduced digital slot scanner. Its equalization range is tailored to the dynamic range of digital camera's. Applied beam profiles are made available to be included in the image file for associated image processing. A scanning wheel in the primary beam plays a key role in the generation of beam profile signals and simplifies system alignment. Because of its simplicity, it can be added to already installed camera's Special measures have been taken to minimize X-ray tube loading.
