The Kinestatic Charge Detector (KCD) digital radiography system has proven itself experimentally to be comparable with or superior to other x-ray imaging systems in the production of quality images at the same dose. The prototype large-field detector design has obtained images that have relatively high spatial and contrast resolution with low scatter and low quantum noise compared with current commercially available clinical x-ray systems. The NIH has approved a grant to develop and construct an advanced clinical KCD digital radiography system. The goals of this project are to design the gantry and clinically evaluate the new system. This system will allow for improved diagnosis, reduced patient dose, and provide other features unique to a digital radiography system.
