The objective of this research is to provide the physical and engineering principles of novel gas detector media operating on gas-microstrip principles. It is believed that the presented technology will have a significant impact on x-ray digital radiography, with emphasis on dual-energy imaging, computed tomography (CT), microtomography and x-ray microscopy, as well as in nuclear medicine, particularly in the important area of quantitative autoradiography, single photon emission tomography (SPECT) and (PET).
