Detectors, X-Ray, Digital Radiography, Mammography
Definition : X-Ray detectors designed to sense the absorption pattern of x-ray radiation from a diagnostic mammography unit and then transmit these data to a computerized workstation. These detectors typically consist of a device including an x-ray sensitive sensor (e.g., a charge coupled device or CCD, amorphous silicon), an analog-to-digital signal converter, and a connection to a mammography workstation. Digital mammography detectors designed for full-field mammography can be used for patient screening as a substitute to conventional film based systems.
