Paper Abstract

Comparative studies of the diagnostic capability between digitized and conventional radiographs of the chest were performed by image scientific study and clinical evaluation. The purpose of this study is to confirm the diagnostic capability of digitized image whether it can be used for primary diagnosis in routine works. The results of two studies show good correlation each other. It is suggested that the conventional chest radiographs should be digitized with 100 μm pixel size in 12 bits density resolution at least.
