A novel imaging system consisting of an X-ray source, an intensifying screen, optical coupling and a cooled CCD camera, for use in medical radiology was designed and evaluated, both theoretically and practically. Various characteristics of the system were analyzed and measured. It is concluded that the quality of images obtained with this system are comparable to or higher than those obtained using conventional systems.
