Abstract

The invention proposes an integrated liquid crystal display (LCD) at back side of an X-ray digital imaging portable detector. The integrated LCD display connects to the X-ray digital imaging detector hardware, firmware and software support. The display facilitates doctors and field engineer to get a preview X-ray image and status information of the X-ray digital imaging detector without accessing the IDC/workstation.

PORTABLE DETECTOR WITH IMAGE PREVIEW AND STATUS DISPLAY ON BACK SIDE

FIELD OF INVENTION

The invention generally relates to display of a portable detector and more particularly to previewing an X-ray image and status information on back side of the portable detector.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

Generally, an X-ray digital imaging detector does not have visual indicators for indicating detector status. The status information of the X-ray digital imaging detector is achieved by accessing international data corporation (IDC) or work station.

A conventional technique involves use of a portable detector for measuring level of radiation exposed to subject to be imaged.  However, status information is not indicated in such portable detectors as well.

Therefore, there is a need in the art for an efficient technique for visual indications of status of an X-ray digital imaging detector.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

The invention proposes an integrated liquid crystal display (LCD) at back side of a portable detector. The display facilitates doctors and field engineer to acquire a preview X-ray image and status information of the X-ray digital imaging detector.
