Medical X-ray detectors are one of the core components of general radiography equipment, which can be divided into flat panel detectors, CCD detectors and one-line scan detectors.
Among them, flat-panel detectors are the current mainstream application, and the materials used include amorphous silicon, amorphous selenium, CMOS (complementary metal oxide semiconductor) and IGZO (indium gallium zinc oxide).
Although the imaging quality of amorphous selenium flat panel detectors is better, it has not yet become the mainstream detector material due to the limitations of life, cost, stability, and fragility. Therefore, amorphous silicon materials dominate the current market for flat panel detectors.
According to a report by Yole, a market research and strategy consulting company:
Flat panel detectors using amorphous silicon and CMOS have the largest market share, with a revenue scale of $1.3 billion in 2018.
The amorphous silicon flat panel detector is composed of a scintillator and a photosensor. The scintillator converts X-rays into visible light, and the photoreceptor converts visible light into digital images.
The scintillator has a fluorescent layer several hundred microns thick, which can absorb X-rays and emit light.
