Paper Abstract

Developing digital radiography techniques provides greater diagnostic information while utilizing less invasive procedures and/or decreased patient dose. An experimental scanned projection radiography system has been built using a CT detector and data acquisition system to provide increased contrast resolution and flexibility in data manipulation. Modifications to the basic system allow dual energy scanning, and subtraction algorithms relying on the energy dependence of the mass attenuation coefficient have been implemented.
