8 May 1995 Imaging performance of a large-field kinestatic charge detector for digital radiography

The initial performance of a digital radiographic system incorporating a large-field (2016- channel) kinestatic charge detector and data acquisition electronics is discussed. The measured modulation transfer function of the system is 20% at 4 cy/mm. The measured detective quantum efficiency is 40 - 60%. These results are comparable with or better than those of current clinical (rare-earth film-screen and storage phosphor) systems. First images from the large-field system are shown and compared with those from commercial systems. Future system improvements in process or in planning are discussed.
