Paper Abstract

Within a PACS environment the integration of images which have been recorded on film is a major requirement. In the past several studies on digital radiology and softcopy viewing were based on images recorded on film. Film is used as the "gold standard" for the assessment of diagnostic image quality. Based on the results of these studies filmdigitizing systems for routine operation have been specified which yield adequate diagnostic quality but not at the expense of high cost and high operational effort. In this paper different methods of film digitization will be compared. A survey of applicational results will be given.
