Paper Abstract

Preliminary study with a prototype 2048 X 2048 pixel format DR (Digital Radiography) system is reported. This DR system uses a novel proximity type X-ray image intensifier (PT-XRII) which has a 18" X 1" sensitive area to scan a field of 18" X 18" in 1.0 second. It is also capable of a 2X zoom, which scans a field of 9" X 9" in 0.5 second into the 2048 X 2048 pixel format. Images from this prototype system are compared with that of the conventional screen-film system.
