Paper Abstract

The use of flat panels based on amorphous silicon technology for digital radiography has been accepted in the medical community due to their advantages over film for several applications. For industrial applications similar advantages for panels exist. Digital radiography gives the user improved sensitivity, better contrast resolution and enables sequential image acquisition. A mixture of radiographic and computed tomographic images are presented that covers the energy range from 125 kVp to 9 MeV.
