Title: Curved vacuum cassette assembly for imaging applications

Abstract

A curved vacuum cassette assembly including a rigid or semi-rigid curved structural backing that is porous or semi-porous to air flow such that one or more imaging detectors (e.g. film layers or CR plates), intensifying screens, and/or other layers may be affixed to the curved structural backing in a secure and conformal manner when a vacuum is applied to the structural backing. All of these structures are encapsulated within an airtight barrier and, optionally, another suitable rigid or semi-rigid housing.
