Paper Abstract

An algorithm for reducing the scatter component in digitally acquired radiographic images is introduced. Using two images acquired in different geometries, the scatter component is calculated on a pixel by pixel basis and used to correct an original image. This process is expedited by using an array processor for computation. The theoretical basis of the algorithm is developed, and experimental results on simple Lucite phantom images are reported.
