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.


The CR15X is supplied as a package with cassettes, a 23” Dicom viewing screen and advanced NX/Musica workstation.
