The Scandiflash CID System is an auxiliary cabinet designed to mount and protect a high-speed video camera at a right angle to an X-ray detector (scintillator screen) for cinematic Flash X-ray radiography. The cabinet can be positioned vertically or horizontally as necessary for optimum Flash X-ray exposure and high-speed recording.

The Scandiflash CID System features a manually adjustable translation stage for precise camera positioning from the scintillator screen, a rotational mirror stage for precise right-angle alignment with the camera sensor and an external I/O panel for connecting additional instrumentation and control computer.

The high-speed video camera is protected from direct X-radiation by a lead shielding plate enclosed in plastic and mounted at a right angle to the scintillator screen – protecting the recording from X-radiation image artifacts (speckling).

The Scandiflash CID System is designed for cineradiographic imaging with Scandiflash FXR MAT systems with multi-anode Flash X-ray tubes.
