The basic component in our detectors is a direct conversion material, which converts the X-rays into electrical signals, and a CMOS (ASIC) which transforms the electric signals into a data stream of either the integrated electric charge or the number of photons which has entered each pixel. This data is then used to create a digital image which is either two- or three-dimensional, depending on the scan geometry.
