Paper Abstract

In the area of high resolution X-ray TV cameras, the present needs are better image quality and more functional capabilities. These requirements can be net with the new PRIMICON pick-up tube that includes up-to-date technologies electrostatic deflection, noncrossover diode gun, integrated light bias and improved photoconductive target. The paper describes how these technological features enhance basic performance such as resolution uniformity between the center and the edges of the image, fully controlled lag and tube compactness which pave the way to cameras combining "High Definition" quality and multimode capability (fluoroscopy/DSA).
