Some scintillators are crystalline, like cesium iodide. Scintillators such as gadolinium oxysulfide phosphors are granular, which can tend to scatter light and cause a loss of photons.
To focus on suspected shape-shifting by dusters, the Charlottesville team repeatedly condensed cesium iodide vapor in cooler helium gas to form a stream containing hundreds of dusters.
The CXDI-501C and CXDI-501G DR detectors have 9.5m megapixel image sensor with a pixel pitch of 125 microns and offer a cesium iodide (CsI) or gadolinium oxysulfide (GSO) scintillator, respectively.
For DR, one or two detectors with either gadolinium or cesium iodide technology can be used.
Agfa HealthCares radiation dose is potentially up to 60 percent lower than conventional systems when MUSICA processing is used with Cesium Bromide (CR) and Cesium Iodide (DR) detectors.
Testing with board certified Radiologists has determined that Cesium Bromide (CR) and Cesium Iodide (DR) Detectors when used with MUSICA processing can provide dose reductions between 50 to 60% when compared to traditional Barium Fluoro Bromide CR systems.
All three systems are equipped with Carestreams DRX Plus 3543C cesium iodide detectors, which deliver high-resolution images and can be shared with other DRX systems.
The Cesium Iodide (CsI) detectors, which can be used with Agfa HealthCares full line of DR product solutions, offers potential dose reductions of up to 60%, furthering healthcare providers goal of using the lowest dose reasonably achievable during each X-ray exam.
