In order to improve the MTF of x-ray image intensifiers we have studied a new type of input phosphor screen. The input phosphor screen is made up of cesium iodide (CsI) columns that contain the ingredient that absorbs light. The ingredient reduces light dispersion in the input phosphor screen. It can make the MTF higher. We made the image intensifier that has the input phosphor screen with the light absorbing ingredient. The MTF characteristics of this image intensifier are higher than that of the conventional image intensifiers.
