Paper Abstract

A novel proximity-type x-ray image intensifier tube is described. This device has the main advantage of fewer sources of unsharpness so that this advantage can be traded for higher MTF performance or dose reduction performance. In addition, the size and shape of this device are not restricted as in the case of current minifying-type x-ray image intensifier tubes. Various systems applications employing this device, such as in simple direct-view intensified panel-like fluoroscopy, low dose TV fluoroscopy and direct radio-graphic miniaturization, are discussed.
