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

There are limitations to using X-ray image intensifiers (II), particularly related to patient size. Image intensifiers have a fixed size, and for larger patients, the entire anatomical area of interest may not fit within the field of view. This can result in incomplete imaging and reduced diagnostic information. Additionally, larger patients may absorb more X-rays, potentially leading to lower image quality due to increased scatter radiation.

Moreover, the physical dimensions of the X-ray table and image intensifier may pose challenges for positioning and maneuvering larger patients, affecting the overall imaging process. In recent years, flat panel detectors (FPDs) have gained popularity as they offer larger field sizes, improved image quality, and a more flexible design, mitigating some of the limitations associated with traditional X-ray image intensifiers, especially when imaging larger or bariatric patients.
