Abstract
We have investigated possible clinical applications of a Kinestatic Charge Detector (KCD) for dual-energy x-ray imaging. The KCD is a good candidate as a detector for dual-energy radiography, because it is a digital detector with a high detective quantum efficiency, good spatial resolution and good scatter rejection. Computer simulations have been performed to design and optimize dual-energy KCDs for specific clinical applications. The clinical applications that have been investigated for dual-energy KCD imaging are chest radiography, mammography and osteoporosis. Experimental data have also been taken with a small research dual-energy KCD.
