Paper Abstract

Over the past decade or so the Annual SPIE Conference on Medical Imaging has provided the leading forum for the latest advances in imaging physics as they relate to the analysis, modeling and evaluation of medical x-ray systems. During this time there has been a near- revolution in the application of modern imaging techniques, to the extent that these now provide a universal language for the description, and inter-comparison of the increasingly diverse range of technologies which have been developed for the improved efficiency of medical diagnostic imaging. It is the intent of this review to provide a survey and reminder of the course of this progress, with illustrations within the general theme of conventional screen- film systems.
