SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR IMPROVED COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY USING PHOTON-COUNTING DETECTORS
Inventors: Ke Li, Guang-Hong Chen
UW researchers present a novel hybrid photon counting detector for imaging. The novel design addresses the fundamental limitations of current silicon PCD technology by replacing the metallic spacers with high-Z scintillator and light sensors to salvage information carried by scattered X-rays.
