Abstract
A timing sequence for operation of an amorphous silicon detector within a digital chest radiography system is evaluated. Measurements of large-area spatial non-uniformities (i.e., artifacts) resulting from various implementations of the sequence are presented. Based on these measurements, a method for operation is determined which successfully eliminates large-area artifacts and which satisfies several important system latency requirements. In addition, a method for quantifying artifacts of the type observed in these experiments is presented.
