The Test device (Flip-Ray[R]) was originally designed for use with photostimulable phosphor receptors, but more recently has been marketed to be compatible with film or photostimulable phosphor receptors (dual-use device).
To standardize the receptor type, all projections were exposed using DenOptix[R] photostimulable phosphor (Gendex, Hatfield, Penn) receptors (displayed in Figure 1).
No studies have evaluated the performance of the new device designed for use with film or digital photostimulable phosphor receptors.
Receptor placement errors occurred primarily due to the increased flexibility of the photostimulable phosphor receptor or the receptor being dislodged from the biteblock.
Acceptance testing and quality control of photostimulable phosphor imaging systems.
Indirect sensors are photostimulable phosphor (PSP) plates, which resemble radiographic film, and which must be "read" by a scanner that in turn transfers the "interpreted" information to the computer.
Physical aspects of photostimulable phosphor computed radiography.
The computed radiography system in the authors' clinic (Fuji Model FCR 9000, Fuji Photo Film, Tokyo, Japan) uses photostimulable phosphor imaging plates (model ST-VA).

The photostimulable phosphor that comprises the imaging plate is very sensitive to scatter -- even to scatter within the plate itself.
