Paper Abstract

Computed radiography (CR) systems transform exposures incident on the imaging plates to image densities using examination specific tonescale display algorithms. A procedure is proposed which permits CR users to optimize these algorithms based on the premise that image contrast should be optimized. This procedure was applied to portable chest x-rays on a medical intensive care unit. Changes made to the display parameters supplied by the manufacturer resulted in an improved quality of the displayed image.
