A review of X-ray imaging phosphors
The important methods of X-ray imaging use various phosphors. The phosphors give light proportional to the amount of radiation. The light is emitted either as X-ray excited fluorescence, phosphorescence, or due to stimulated, radiative recombinations of defects generated by X-ray exposures. The role of phosphors in improving image quality and reducing exposures to patients is important. Properties of various phosphors which can be used for X-ray imaging applications are reviewed here.
