In recent years new digital x-ray radiographic and fluoroscopic systems based on large-area flat-panel technology have revolutionized our capability of producing x-ray images. However, such imagers are extraordinarily expensive and their rapid image acquisition capability is not required for many applications such as radiography. Here we report a novel(More)
Digital x-ray radiographic systems are desirable as they offer high quality images which can be processed, transferred, and stored without secondary steps. However, current clinical systems are extraordinarily expensive in comparison to film-based systems. Thus, there is a need for an economical digital imaging system for general radiology. The x-ray light(More)
New x-ray radiographic systems based on large-area flat-panel technology have revolutionized our capability to produce digital x-ray images. However, these imagers are extraordinarily expensive compared to the systems they are replacing. Hence, there is a need for a low-cost digital imaging system for general applications in radiology. A novel potentially(More)
An x-ray light valve (XLV) coupled with an optical scanner has the potential to meet the need for a low-cost, high quality digital imaging system for general radiography. The XLV/scanner concept combines three well-established, and hence, low-cost technologies: An amorphous selenium (a-Se) layer as an x-ray-to-charge transducer, a liquid crystal (LC) cell(More)
