Paper Abstract

Automatic background recognition and removal is an important step for the implementation of automatic soft copy display in PACS and teleradiology. We developed a method that performs very well in pediatric and regular ICU CR images. We have recently modified the method to accommodate special situations including irregular shaped and circular collimators, and multiple exposures on one CR imaging plate. Interesting cases are presented to demonstrate the effect of before and after the background removal of the image.
