Image Storage Plates, Radiography

Definition : Image storage plates designed for temporary storage of a latent image after exposure to radiation from an x-ray (radiography) diagnostic unit. These plates typically consist of a thin sheet of a radiolucent material coated on one side with a layer of a suspension of long-term storage phosphor. The plates are usually housed in cassettes similar to those used in screen-film systems to facilitate their use and transport and to protect them from environmental light. After exposure, the plate is typically transferred to a reading device that produces a digital image from the latent image. Radiography image storage plates can be used in computed radiography (digital) systems or as a substitute for conventional screen films.
