Paper Abstract

Using the standard format of an observer detection study, the comparative performance of digital radiography using a CT localization device and film screen radiography in the detection of pulmonary nodules was evaluated. The experiment was designed to test the operation of these systems in a simulated clinical environment by using an anthropomorphic chest phantom.
