Cassettes, Radiography, Image Plate
Definition : Radiography cassettes designed for holding a plate storing latent images that are captured when the plate is exposed to radiation from an x-ray (radiography) diagnostic unit. These cassettes are typically placed in an x-ray cassette holder that is a component of the radiography unit. After x-ray exposure, the image plate is transferred to a reading device that produces a digital image from the latent image. Radiography image storage plate cassettes are typically used in computed radiography (digital) systems or as a substitute for conventional screen-film cassettes.
