Solid state sensors like charge coupled device (CCD), complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) and photostimulable phosphor plates (PSP) largely replaced the film based conventional imaging.
10) In order to adhere to this recommendation, radiographers have continued to use paralleling devices originally designed for film even though many have transitioned to using digital photostimulable phosphor receptors.
Computed radiography is similar to conventional radiography; however, it uses imaging plates made of photostimulable phosphor instead of films.
Among the topics are digital radiographic image processing and manipulating, photostimulable phosphor image capture, networking and communication basics, and quality acceptance testing within digital projection imaging.
Variable-resolution cone-beam computerized tomography with enhancement filtration compared with intraoral photostimulable phosphor radiography in detection of transverse root fractures in an in vitro model.
Photostimulable phosphor (PSP) plates are small, thin sensors that resemble traditional film packets.
At the time, there was only one technology available to replace the analog screen-film detector--a cassette-based, passive acquisition photostimulable storage phosphor (PSP) and plate reader system, known as "computed radiography" (CR).
6) Photostimulable phosphor plates behave as energy-integrating detectors, and the output signal is proportional to the total deposited energy.
The direct system uses a sensor based on a charge coupled device (CCD) and the indirect uses photostimulable phosphor plates (PSP).
The radiographer places the imaging plate into a digital processing unit where the surface is scanned by a laser and emits light by a process referred to as photostimulable luminescence.
