A new X-ray detector using technology from from Los Alamos National Laboratory could reduce radiation and improve resolution for medical imaging, reports the Santa Fe New Mexican

A new X-ray detector prototype is on the brink of revolutionizing medical imaging, potentially reducing the need for (or at least the weight of) a lead apron. The advance could dramatically decrease medical radiation exposure, while also boosting resolution in security scanners and research applications, thanks to a novel type of electronics being developed at Los Alamos National Laboratory, in coordination with Argonne National Laboratory researchers.
