Paper Abstract

This paper compares image quality of conventional film based portal images with the quality of portal images based on computed radiography (CR). The paper concludes that portal imaging with CR imaging plates instead of the conventional film provides images which have a significantly higher image quality. CR based portal images permit better visualization of important landmarks.
