Paper Abstract

A novel dry hard copy system for digital medical imaging is reviewed in this paper. This recording system was developed in conjunction with Tektronix Corporation and is based on phase change ink jet technology. The system uses a novel approach to construct gray scale resulting in > 300 dpi resolution and up to 10 bit gray scale output. Special media and inks have been developed to enhance durability and meet requirements for stability and image color. Field evaluations at several hospitals and clinics confirm full diagnostic image quality and show equivalence to conventional wet-processed silver halide laser recording systems.
