1 June 1992 Importance of TV camera tube parameters in fluoroscopic imaging
Author Affiliations +
In the search for better ftuoroscopic imaging, the TV camera tube performance has become more critical. Traditional camera tube test methods, which expose tubes to extreme conditions, have only marginal correlation to typical fluoroscopic usage. This paper compares these traditional measurements with test measurements made on a modern fluoroscopic digital system for two different types of TV camera tubes. The results obtained show how the x-ray system influences the importance of the TV camera tube parameters and which tube features are most relevant.
