Paper Abstract

High-resolution digital medical images are produced by solid-state linear x- ray detectors. The detectors analyze the x-ray images line by line. They are associated with a mechanical scanning of the image. Multilinear detectors sense several lines at the same time and operate a TDI (time delay and integration) digital process. The TDI process is useful to increase the image signal-to-noise ratio. Linear or multilinear detectors make imaging systems possible which have a very wide image dynamic range, lack of geometrical distortion, and direct digital output signal. The output signal can be easily interfaced with any kind of digital processing system.
