Abstract
Strip (or slot) beam digital radiography has been proposed as an ideal compromise between the excellent scatter rejection of pencil-beam or single-line scanned projection radiography systems and the excellent x-ray utilization of wide area beam systems. Moreover, the Kinestatic Charge Detector (KCD) has been proposed as a strip beam detector candidate with a potential for achieving a spatial resolution of over 5 cy/mm, a quantum detection efficiency (QDE) near unity ( > 90% and a local exposure time at a given contrast resolution which is less than other detection techniques (i.e., reduced motion blurring). Several laboratory KCDs containing various numbers of channels have now been constructed and tested which allow a better understanding of the practical performance which can be expected from a strip beam digital radiography system using a KCD.
