Paper Abstract

The evolution of the multiformat camera for medical diagnostic imaging has been extremely rapid. Over a period of little more than ten years, the camera has changed from a relatively crude device for recording images from an oscilloscope screen, to highly automated systems capable of a large number of image sizes, with maintenance of consistent photographic results due to automatic compensation for a number of image variables. The camera design presents many interesting problems, made up of mechanical, electronic, and optical components. This has resulted in the development of manufacturers who have specialized very successfully in the production of this imaging component.
