Are there any limitations to using an X-ray image intensifier in terms of imaging artifacts?

While X-ray image intensifiers (II) are valuable tools in medical imaging, they are not without limitations and may introduce certain artifacts. One common artifact is distortion, which can occur due to the geometric configuration of the II system. Pincushion and barrel distortions are examples that may affect image accuracy. Additionally, intensifier input phosphor defects, such as burn-in or scratches, can lead to image artifacts. Quantum mottle, a noise-like pattern, may arise from insufficient X-ray exposure or low signal-to-noise ratios. Furthermore, X-ray intensifiers are susceptible to blooming, an effect where bright structures can bleed into adjacent areas, impacting image clarity. While advancements in technology have addressed some of these issues, awareness of potential artifacts is essential for accurate interpretation and diagnosis in X-ray imaging using intensifiers. We are a manufacturer of X-ray machines and their accessories.
