Paper Abstract

Digital film scanning/printing systems which do not alter the diagnostic content of radiographs are required for diagnostic teleradiography, electronic image archiving, and image enhancement. Described is a high fidelity system capable of digitizing and reprinting films with minimal alteration of detail or degradation of noise for either general radiographs or mammograms. The system transfers resolution up to 10 lp/mm and has a useful density range of 0-3.5. Examples of chest, bone and breast films are presented.
