Paper Abstract

Picture archiving and communication system (PACS) are total-imaging system which are clinically useful in improving the quality of diagnostic images and facilitating the day-to-day evaluation of patients. The most important consideration for clinicians is the feasibility of producing reliable diagnostic images on the CRT screen of a PACS, which does not employ film. In order to evaluate this point, X-ray films demonstrating various pathological findings were digitized, image-processed, and interpreted on CRT. The results of CRT interpretation were compared with the findings obtained using conventional films alone. As a result of this comparison, it was demonstrated that the CRT images were diagnostically superior to conventional X-ray films or to recent CR images if image processing techniques were optimized to exhibit the findings of various pathological conditions.
