Paper Abstract

A prototype video based medical image processing system is evaluated. The system is an adaptation of the Measuronics LMS II technology which is currently used for remote sensing applications. Initial investigations have identified many potential applications of the system in medical image processing. In addition to enhancement of a single radiograph, this system is capable of image subtraction (temporal and energy) and image superposition. This new system may provide an economical means to increase diagnostic information using conventional radiographic techniques and equipment.
