Caesium Iodide scintillator with column-like micro-structures that preserve image quality; intercepts the X-ray beam and converts it into visible light. The Fibre Optics Plate collimates the radiation onto the sensor and protects it against X-ray penetration. The CMOS acquisition device and the electronics convert the light into a high definition digital image
Diameter of a fiber strand / Distance between fiber centering
The numerical aperture, or NA, defines the angle of acceptance—beyond which light is lost out the sides of the fiber. The greater the NA of the fiber, the better the light transmission of the fiber.
The larger the N·A is, the
greater of luminous flux will be entering the fiber-optic image element
A detail resolution capability of the
optical system to the transferred image
The higher the resolution is,
the stronger the ability of distinguish image details will be.
In addition to the mono fiber elements, a second fiber is used in the construction of the multi fiber. Extra-mural absorption (EMA)fibers are special black absorbing fibers, inserted between (or in place of) mono fibers, which will absorb stray (scat-tered) light in the fiber optic material.
