Paper Abstract

A fully portable, small-format X-ray imaging system with the acronym Lixiscope (Low Intensity X-ray Imaging Scope) is described. In the prototype, which has been built to demonstrate the feasibility of the Lixiscope concept, only well-developed and available components have been used. We discuss the principles of operation of the device, some of its performance characteristics as well as possible dental, medical and industrial applications.
