A mobile x-ray apparatus having wheels for manual transport and an x-ray tube support attached to a base. The apparatus may be rolled by pushing and/or pulling the base, the support, or the x-ray tube. A brake is associated with at least one of the wheels to prevent rolling the apparatus when manually positioning the x-ray tube. The brake may be engaged from an actuator on the tube head, on the support, or on the base.

Embodiments of radiographic imaging systems; radiography detectors and methods for using the same; and/or fabrication methods therefore can include radiographic imaging array that can include a plurality of pixels that each include a photoelectric conversion element coupled to a thin-film switching element. In certain exemplary embodiments, thin-film switching element is a metal oxide (e.g., a-IGZO) TFT manufactured using a reduce photolithography mask counts. In certain exemplary embodiments, the thin-film switching element is a metal oxide (e.g., a-IGZO) TFT that includes reduced lower alignment tolerances between TFT electrodes. In certain exemplary embodiments, the thin-film switching element is a metal oxide (e.g., a-IGZO) TFT including a reduced thickness active layer.

A conductive article comprising conductive structures dispersed within at least one binder, where the at least one binder comprises vinyl butyral repeat units and vinyl alcohol repeat units. Such conductive structures may, in some embodiments, comprise metal conductive structures, such as, for example, metal nanostructures. Silver nanowires are exemplary metal nanostructures.

A phase contrast x-ray imaging system generates an absorption image and a phase shift image of an object under study. The absorption image represents a measurement of the imaged objects attenuation of radiographic energy, and the phase shift image represents a measurement of the imaged objects phase shifting of the radiographic waves passing through the object. The two images may be used to improve soft tissue discrimination in radiographic imaging.
