Computed Imaging with Stimulated Luminescence Technique

  • E. Boijsen
Conference paper


During the last 5 years, several new types of computed radiographic systems intended to replace conventional radiographic techniques have appeared. The screen-film system has thus been replaced as an X-ray sensor either by an image intensifier TV camera system or by various types of linear array sensors, as in computerized tomography (CT), converting the signals into digital form [2, 6]. These sensors have limitations, so the image quality is not comparable to that of the screen-film combination. Improvements in image intensifiers, TV cameras, and array systems do, however, give promise of higher quality in the future.
