Design trade off, and performance analysis performed during Phase 1 show conclusively, that large area, solid state digital x ray imaging panels can be produced cost competitively. Their performance level is projected to exceed the filmscreen combination presently used. Also, it was concluded that the radiation dose applicable will not have detrimental effects on the gate array architectures of the electronic read out device. Large area digital x ray imaging panel will find utility in both medical diagnostic as well as industrial inspection applications. Their use will potentially replace the film currently used in these applications. The critical technologies can be summarized as follows panel architecture, component configurations, radiation damage assessment, pixel read out rates, performance projections, and cost analysis. It was concluded that large area, solid state x ray imaging panels can be produced using present technologies.
