need to get info about digital x ray

I really need to get good informations concerning digital x ray.
I'm a future level III in X-ray applications (on aircraft engines parts) and I'm working on a digital x ray machine but I don't find any information about it. I can work with the equipment but I'd like to know how it works exactly (detector, imaging...)
Could someone help me ?

Re: need to get info about digital x ray
Hi Christophe,

My area is med electronics and usually the stuff in that field is a bit more advanced because it's a bigger market. So you'd find the best explanations there. Digital x-ray machines use an amorphous silicon array as a detector which allows to render results very fast into a computer and onto the screen. You'll find them in most modern cath labs, just hope you never have to see one from below (as a patient).

Major med companies have lots of educational material about this. For starters a web page on the GE site would be:

http://www.gemedicalsystems.com/rad/xr/msxrev.html

There are many more, such as Philips. When you check the medical electronics section of a good university library or large tech book store you should find something as well.

Good luck, Joerg.

Re: need to get info about digital x ray
For the latest developments in digital X-ray take a look at the cover story in American Welding Society September 2003 Inspection Trends issue. It is available online at: http://www.aws.org/itrends/

Re: need to get info about digital x ray
Hello!
I can easily see your confusion about the different equipment on the market.
I was working on med. digital X-rays equipment since they became available (ca. 2000. I have worked on different brands, and I have experience from GE, Philips, Siemens, Fuji, Kodak, Toshiba and Agfa (Also the Dicom 3.0 protocol from Agfa, Kodak, GE and the compatability problems between them. If you want a personal opinion on these brands give me a mail at

Exertus Dual 120

The Exertus Dual 120 Projector has the ability to accept Iridium 192 sources or Selenium 75 source
...
s. This projector incorporates design and safety features that make it flexible, compact and lightweight. The Projector is lighter than most of its competitors. It incorporates an improved source channel, based on a new helicoidal design, which makes maintenance easier. The helicoidal design also allows smoother movement of the source assembly inside the device, making it easier for the operator and improving safety. The Projector also has a unique safety feature not found in competitive products. The source assembly locking mechanism is triggered by the source holder capsule at the front of the source assembly, thereby always assuring the operator that the source has returned to the safe position. The Exertus Dual 120 is ISO3999:2004 compliant.
