Paper Abstract

The Fuji AC-1 is a popular system for digital radiography with great potential, but for many the initial implementation of the system in a radiology service is frustrating experience for lack of effective support and a clear operational manual. Adjusting the image processing settings for site specific image optimization has been, for most users, difficult and confusing. The effect of each of the image processing parameters available on the Fuji AC-1 is not easily understood by users of the machine. The application manual that comes with the machine briefly defines the parameters and gives recommended settings for different types of examinations, but the manual does not provide the user with adequate information or a suggested method to allow the user to easily optimize the image for that user's site. This paper defines in more precise terms the meaning of the various parameters and suggests a method of procedure to optimize the parameters to each radiologists preference. The results are based on experiments and measurements we performed with a Fuji AC-1 +. This information should assist the radiologist to use a more systematic method of image quality improvement rather than the somewhat random trial and error process that current users have described.
