Hamamatsu Photonics introduce the CMOS flat panel sensor for digital x-ray imaging applications. The C9321SK-05 consists of a Megapixel (1056 x 1056 elements) detector array, each of 50 micron size, to provide a total x-ray sensitive area of roughly 3 inches.
The x-ray imager utilises a gadox scintillator deposited onto a fibre-optic plate, to provide an effective x-ray shield. This fibre-optic provides both improved image quality (lower x-ray shot noise) and it shields the sensitive CMOS electronics inside the panel, thus giving extended lifetime of 6 million Roentgen guaranteed at 150 KVp.
Compared to previous flat panel sensors the C9321SK-05 also offers higher frame rates of 9 frames per second at full resolution and the device is capable of real time imaging at 27 frames per second with 2 x 2 binning. Hamamatsu also supplies a range of sealed and open type microfocus x-ray sources for high-resolution x-ray imaging applications.
