Low cost digital X-ray detector
Pneumavision, ON, Canada
We have developed an alternate sensor to the industry standard PIN photodiode based on amorphous silicon technology. Our patent-pending sensor can be fabricated using LCD-TFT foundries and when coupled with our amorphous silicon active pixel sensor technology, can yield a low cost, robust, and high performance digital X-ray detector.
