digital fluoroscopy

digital fluoroscopy

using a solid-state radiation detector and electronic processing with a computer monitor for display.

digital fluoroscopy

the projection of a radiographic image on an image-intensifying fluorescent screen coupled to a digital video image processor. The screen has an input surface coated with a phosphor that is twice as sensitive to x-rays as conventional x-ray film. The visible light from the energized phosphor is electronically amplified and directed into a video camera. The video image is divided into pixels, which are in turn converted or digitized for storage or reproduction through an image processor.
