Paper Abstract

Clinical evaluation results are presented using a large area, real time, amorphous selenium (a:Se), flat panel detector (FPD). The detector comprises of 1 mm thick amorphous selenium layer deposited onto a TFT panel that has a pixel pitch of .15 mm. The field of view of the detector is about 14” x 14” that is large enough to be used in R/F as well as general angiography application including digital subtraction angiography (DSA). Due to its high spatial resolution and low noise performance, it is shown that the detector is well suited to replace conventional image intensifier systems as well as film-screen systems.
