Abstract
Experiments and calculations are used to list the properties of integrating X-ray detectors important in digital applications. This list includes costs, detective quantum efficiency, non-linear effects, signal to noise ratio, and noise equivalent number of photons. Indicated are the critical areas, where improvements are still possible. Naturally all future improvements on the detector side will relieve constraints for the X-ray source and will improve scanner versatility and image quality.
