Paper Abstract

The advent of the 14" large format triple mode image intensifier and the thin window dual mode image intensifier have made a significant impact on the basic phyrosophy regarding the utilization of imaging devices for some radiological procedures. The physical characteristics of these image intensifiers were sufficiently advanced to induce a different approach in the mind of radiologists to carry out radiological procedures that deviate from the conventional and common practices. For example, the 14" large format image intensifier may eliminate the need for a full-size cassette spot filming device. Instead, recording of images is accomplished with the image intensifier/100 mm photospot camera chain. Although this may not be a new idea, since there are numerous fluoroscopic systems that are equipped with 100 mm/105 mm photospot cameras. It is a new approach in the sense that when the 14" image intensifier is employed for fluoroscopy a full-size cassette spot filming device is eliminated entirely and only the 100 mm photospot camera is available for recording of images.
