Abstract : An oral image intensifier with peripheral equipment was designed and prototyped. The device utilizes a small number of short X-ray pulses, which form an image inside the mouth on a phosphor covering the end of a fiber optic bundle. The fiber optic bundle is curved and carries the low light level image outside of the mouth to a small image intensifier, which amplifies the image to a visual level. A closed circuit TV system further amplifies the image and presents it on a monitor. When the project is completed, the entire system will fit into one or two medium sized suitcases. (Author)
