Imaging plate

  • Junji Miyahara


The imaging plate (IP) is a new and flexible X-ray sensor for the CR system which uses the conventional medical X-ray imaging system and can be employed as a substitute for the screen/film system. The IP is made by densely applying particles of inorganic crystals called photostimulable phosphor onto a polyester film. The phosphor layer has the function of recording an X-ray image. The photostimulable phosphor is a special luminescent material which stores X-ray energy and emits light proportional to the stored X-ray energy when stimulation energy such as visible light is irradiated to it.
