AUTUM C. PYLANT, NEWS EDITOR, [email protected]

A novel photonics technology is being developed to produce a set of low radiation, low cost, flat panel x-ray detectors, promising safer diagnosis for patients and less exposure for hospital and dental staff. The DiCoMo — Direct Conversion hybrid-organic x-ray detectors on Metal oxide backplane — project also promises this new technology will produce some of the highest resolution images ever seen in single x-ray records or CT scans. High resolution images are seen with direct converters used in mammography, as they use semiconductors that directly convert the x-rays into...Read full article
