Abstract : Two previously developed x-ray imager technologies, the x-ray light valve and segmented digital imager are being combined into a larger area (8.5"x11.3") screen with high resolution (50 micrometers) suitable for mammography. By applying current engineering devices and practices, a low noise image is expected. We expect to achieve the same size, resolution and image quality as film. During the first year the overall image design was finished and a prototype of the CCD electronics and digital signal processor was tested.
