1. A radiographic imaging apparatus, comprising:

  • an x-ray source irradiating an object to be inspected with x-rays;

    a fluoroscopic x-ray image detector capable of receiving the x-rays which pass through the object and converting the received x-rays into a first output;

    a display capable of picking up the first output; and

    , an x-ray detector element having an undivided converter material capable of receiving the x-rays which pass through the object to produce signals corresponding to the x-rays, the x-ray detector element converting the signals into a second digital output;

    wherein the x-ray detector element is capable of providing higher spatial resolution images of a region of interest detected by the fluoroscopic x-ray image detector.
