Paper Abstract

The impact of direct digital capture on projection radiography has been explored with Sterling Diagnostic Imaging's DirectRay amorphous selenium detector in several clinical trials. Progress, key lessons learned, and immediate plans are discussed below. Plans for a clinical field trial involving a dedicated chest system are described. The existing screen-film workflow is compared with the workflow of an integrated digital chest system. The flexibility of the digital system is described as it relates to a phased approach to PACS implementation. The relationship of DirectRay images with DIOCM is described as it relates to interoperability. This includes the image processing architecture and the development of the DICOM Digital X-Ray (DX) Information Object Definition (IOD).
