Paper Abstract

The development of high resolution image intensifier tubes, television cameras and electronic storage devices has opened up the possibility of significant advances in the techniques of diagnostic radiology. Systems incorporating these components can increase diagnostic information, reduce procedure time, decrease patient trauma, reduce radiation dose and permit new types of procedures to be undertaken that were previously not possible. These new electronic recording techniques have now been used in gastro-intestinal examinations, selective catheterization, pelvimetry, repair of intra cranial aneurysms and arterio-venous malformations as well as in the high-resolution transmission of radiographic film images from the emergency room to the diagnostic reading room.
