Bucky-Potter grid The Bucky-Potter grid is a device invented by German radiologist Gustav Bucky and improved by American radiologist Hollis E. Potter that enhances the quality of diagnostic medical x-ray images.
Collimator A collimator is a device that narrows a beam of particles or waves.
Compound refractive lens A Compound refractive lens (CRL) is a series of individual lenses arranged in a linear array in order to achieve focusing of X-rays in the energy range of 5-40 keV.
Detective quantum efficiency The detective quantum efficiency (often abbreviated as DQE) is a measure of the combined effects of the signal (related to image contrast) and noise performance of an imaging system, generally e...
Phase-contrast X-ray imaging Phase-contrast X-ray imaging or phase-sensitive X-ray imaging is a general term for different technical methods that use information concerning changes in the phase of an X-ray beam that passes through an object in order to create its images.
Photographic plate Photographic plates preceded photographic film as a target medium in photography. A light-sensitive emulsion of silver salts was applied to a glass plate.
Pilatus (detector) Pilatus is the name of a series of silicon pixel detectors developed at the Swiss Light Source, and commercialised by Dectris.
Semiconductor detector A semiconductor detector is a device that uses a semiconductor (usually silicon or germanium) to detect traversing charged particles or the absorption of photons.
Silicon drift detector Silicon drift detectors (SDDs) are X-ray radiation detectors used in x-ray spectrometry (EDS) and electron microscopy (EDX).
Wolter telescope A Wolter telescope is a telescope for X-rays using only grazing incidence optics.
X-ray astronomy detector X-ray astronomy detectors are instruments that detect X-rays for use in the study of X-ray astronomy.
