Paper Abstract

Storage phosphor radiography of the musculoskeletal system offers significant advantages for most potential diseases of the skeleton. Proper use of the system is however essential if its value is to equal or exceed that of conventional screen film radiography. There are two competing storage phosphor imaging commercial systems currently designed to accommodate musculoskeletal images. The Fuji and the AGFA systems. The image processing methods for the Fuji and AGFA machines differ substantially from each other and there are advantages and disadvantages of each system.
