PSP system

A radiographic system that stores image data as electron charges on a cassette (an imaging plate); digital filmless radiography. When scanned by a laser, the stored charges emit light whose intensities can be digitized and displayed as a radiograph. The cassette, unlike an exposed film, is reusable.
