THE MEDICAL X-RAY FIELD NEEDS TO LOOK FOR A CCD ALTERNATIVE

 

With major producers of CCD’s shutting down manufacturing factories, the gradual shift away from CCD Radiology Imaging Units (RIU’s) has been rapidly sped up and obsolescence of these units is imminent. CCD image sensors are a key component of camera lens assemblies that, together with an image intensifier, forms an RIU used for x-ray imaging and have been a staple in C-arms for decades. However, recent shifts in the manufacturing have left the future of C-arm technology for economy systems up in the air as CCD sensors face obsolescence. The gradual shifts in healthcare have slowly moved the field away from CCD C-arms towards newer imaging options, such as flat panel detectors, and this shift has begun to gain momentum.
