Paper Abstract

Photoelectronic imaging offers the advantages of low operating cost, ease of use, and compatibility of media throughout the system. Until recently, most diagnostic images were full-size x-ray film which serves both as image receptor, storage medium, and display. The disadvantages associated with film are a relatively long preparation time, virtually no possibility to interact with the recorded information, and incompatibility with high-speed storage and retrieval systems. Digital imaging modalities such as CT and DVI are posing new image management requirements. The contrast resolution of these systems is larger than can be represented on CRT monitors and multiformat films. Therefore, it is necessary to use digital media to store the full image data. Also, for fluorography digital formats offer advantages. The image data can be transmitted without adding noise and image processing can improve diagnostic viewing. Techniques of electronic image management and optical disk storage provide a unified and flexible means for integrating dissimilar imaging devices and non-imaging data in a single system.
