How does Needle Phosphor work?

Traditional Computed radiography systems use storage phosphor plates known as powder plates. The active layer consists of microscopic phosphor crystals, held together by a binder. The new needle plate leads to better image quality than a powder plate for two reasons. The needles act as light guides, thereby strongly reducing light spread in the phosphor layer. As a consequence, image sharpness is much higher at equal thickness. Also, no binder is present, which implies a higher phosphor packing density and, thus, a higher X-ray absorption. Needle Phosphor plates have the ability to provide a number of real performance improvements over the standard powder phosphor type. High absorption of X-Ray photons in the phosphor layer is a prerequisite for good image quality A thicker phosphor layer can be used improving the conversion of X-Rays to light thus improving the conversion and reducing the dose up to 55%. In needle phosphor screens the light scattering is minimal thus improving image sharpness. The CR15X is supplied as a package with cassettes, a 23” Dicom viewing screen and advanced NX/Musica2 workstation.
