Paper Abstract

The Radiology Department of the University of Arizona Health Sciences Center is involved in a five year project to develop a prototype for a Totally Digital Radiology Department (TDRD). One prerequisite for such a department is that the system must allow the radiologist to perform at the same level as with the existing film-based system. The amount of spatial and contrast resolution required to equal the diagnostic information in films will impact directly on the capabilities of the equipment needed to image, transmit, display, and store such images. This is a crucial question that must be addressed because of its diagnostic import and due to its engineering implications.
