Plastic x-ray detector achieves medical-grade imaging performance

Digital x-ray systems offer a number of advantages over conventional analog systems—images are processed faster and can be shared easily, and less radiation is required to produce them—but they also share one disadvantage: digital x-rays still use large glass substrates. Two years ago, researchers at the Holst Centre (Eindhoven, Netherlands) and imec (Leuven, Belgium) demonstrated that the use of plastic substrates in x-ray systems was technically feasible and would result in lighter, more robust, and less expensive devices.
