Paper Abstract

Computed radiography (CR) is a recent development in diagnostic radiology which yields digital radiographs. Digital image enhancement of CR images in the form of smoothing the noise and enhancing the edges of anatomic boundaries has been used as a means to aid the physician in extracting clinical information from the radiograph. Details of the smoothing and edge enhancing function are discussed along with potential diagnostic applications.
