Cassettes, Radiography, Image Plate, Mammography
Definition : Radiography cassettes designed for holding a plate storing latent images that are captured when the plate is exposed to radiation from a mammography unit; typically, they are designed to be placed in an x-ray cassette holder in the mammography unit. These cassettes are typically available in the size and configuration needed for conventional mammography units. After x-ray exposure, the image plate is transferred to a reading device that produces a digital image from the latent image. Image storage plate cassettes are typically used as a substitute for conventional screen-film cassettes.
