Paper Abstract

A picture archival and communications system has been under development at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania for the past two years. This system features a fiber optic network, high resolution display for initial interpretation, and a lower resolution display for review and comparison. A laser optical disk will be used for mass storage. A high resolution digital camera is used to acquire images from x-ray film. This manuscript addresses an analysis of the image resolution, intensity transformations, and noise associated with the digital scanning camera and the high resolution cathode ray tube displays. A linear systems approach is utilized for this analysis.
