Global Flat Panel X-Ray Detectors Market: Drivers and Trends
With the advent of direct digital radiography (DR) technologies in the X-ray detectors market, demand for flat panel detectors (FPDs) by healthcare institutions and professionals has risen significantly across the globe. Considerable research in the field of X-ray imaging technologies led to the development of direct digital radiography systems. The research has its roots embedded in the development of active-matrix liquid-crystal displays (AMLCDs) for their major use in laptop computers. These AMLCDs constitute an active matrix array which consists of millions of semiconductor components embedded on a substrate. An intensifying screen attached to such an array forms the foundation of flat panel X-ray detectors. These detectors can be utilized in both radiography as well as fluoroscopy.
Flat panel detectors offer several advantages over traditional detectors such as image intensifiers, imaging plates, films, scintillators as well as CR or PSP detectors. According to an article published by FlatPanelDR, FPD-based DR systems provide a potential for less exposure to harmful radiations along with improved contrast visibility compared to those with much improved PSP detector-based CR systems. The study also suggested that FPDs performed best with conditions equivalent to those for radiography of the chest and lowest for conditions that imitated radiography of the extremities.
Most of the flat panel detection systems or DR systems utilize indirect type (i.e. a-Si type) of FPDs. However, recent research and development efforts have also introduced the direct type (i.e. a-Se type) of FPDs in the global markets. At present, demand for direct digital radiography systems is higher than for any other X-ray systems available worldwide. This would boost the demand for flat panel detectors in the global market and hence contribute towards their augmented growth rate during the forecast period.
