Paper Abstract

With the present great interest in digital methods of subtraction for angiography, it is useful to compare the clinical quality of images produced by careful control of analog techniques using subtraction film. The advantages and disadvantages of digital electronic imaging are discussed and a comparison with film methods is made with particular emphasis on the spatial resolution capability of each system, and the clinical significance of the limitations of each of the systems. A spectrum of examinations is presented to illustrate the limitations of both methods.
