Paper Abstract

The Toshiba Computed Radiography system (TCR) is one of the first digital x-ray imaging systems, which permits imaging of large area formats up to the chest format of 14" x 17". It uses an imaging plate, based on a storage phosphor, which is read out with the aid of a scanning laser beam after exposure to x-radiation in the patients examination room, making use of photostimulable radioluminescence (PSL). As a truly digital system, it separates the functions of detection and display such that the information displayed to the human observer can be optimized with respect to the requirements of the observer.
