Image Storage Plates

Definition : Dedicated plates designed for temporary storage of latent images. These devices typically consist of a thin plate of translucent plastic material covered with an excitable compound (e.g., storage phosphor) used for storage of a latent image following exposure of the material to some type of radiation (e.g., x-ray, light). After exposure, the plates are transferred to reading devices that retrieve the information from the latent image and convert it to a digital signal.
