Paper Abstract

Digital radiography, in conjunction with digital subtraction methods can provide high quality images of the vascular system,1-4 Spatial resolution is one important limiting factor of this imaging technique. Since spatial resolution of a digital image is a function of pixel size, it is important to determine the pixel size threshold necessary to provide information comparable to that of conventional angiograms. This study was designed to establish the pixel size necessary to identify accurately stenotic and ulcerative lesions of the carotid artery.
