Paper Abstract

Digital fluorography (DF) images are degraded from ideal through the action of a variety of random processes associated with the imaging chain. Several studies of the sources of the noises have been reported [1, 2]; these, and earlier studies have concentrated on evaluation of the contributions to total DF system noise output. This paper utilizes previous results along with a signal evaluation to provide suggestions of desired DF system operating parameters. In addition, several additional noise sources which may arise in practical clinical DF systems are evaluated.
