Abstract
Electrostatic imaging techniques provide the means to record x-ray images without the use of film. The conventional screen-film photon receptor is replaced by a charged selenium-oxide plate. After exposure, the plate is scanned with multiple electrometer probes forming a 1024x1024x12 bit digital image from the latent electrostatic image. This imaging modality represents an early entry into the era of true digital radiography, evolving toward a filmless diagnostic imaging facility. This paper discusses the architecture of an experimental charged selenium plate projection digital x-ray system. As well as some preliminary results of the characteristics of a amorphous selenium plate photon receptor exposed to visible light.
