Abstract
An analysis is presented of the application of a scanning linear X-ray detector to dual kVp chest radiography, and the single kVp imaging of anatomical areas other than chest. Clinical evaluation of an experimental digital chest unit utilizing a solid state linear detector array has provided information regarding the post-patient photon flux required for clinically acceptable images. Results from computer simulation show that successful energy subtraction imaging of the chest by the method of kVp switching will be unsuccessful unless it can be demonstrated clinically that a much lower number of photons per pixel is accept-able in energy subtracted images. In addition, it is shown that X-ray tube loading limitations preclude imaging of the abdominal and pelvic regions.
