CR uses new plate technology to improve image quality

Article

An advanced phosphor plate that increases the detector quantum efficiency possible on a CR system is being shown at the RSNA meeting. The cesium bromide phosphor-based detector built into the Regius 370 upright CR system from Konica Minolta Medical Imaging sharpens images by using a columnar fiber crystal structure that provides a straightforward path for x-ray energy.

An advanced phosphor plate that increases the detector quantum efficiency possible on a CR system is being shown at the RSNA meeting. The cesium bromide phosphor-based detector built into the Regius 370 upright CR system from Konica Minolta Medical Imaging sharpens images by using a columnar fiber crystal structure that provides a straightforward path for x-ray energy.

The Regius 370 increases image clarity by adding an antiscatter lead sheet to reduce x-ray scattering. It removes image artifacts by means of a hybrid processing algorithm.

Because of its 87.5-µm and 175-µm scanning resolutions, the system can be used for a wide range of clinical applications. A 17 by 17-inch CR fixed plate reader handles any type of upright imaging, including chest, abdomen, and extremity studies.

The Regius 370 is compact in size - 2.5 feet wide and 5.2 feet tall -- and quick, with a preview time of only 10 seconds. Like its predecessor, the Regius 350, the 370 supports x-ray tube synchronization and autocollimation and is able to interface with a variety of x-ray equipment.
