Paper Abstract

Although new imaging modalities routinely use digital imaging processing and display, digitization of conventional radiographic procedures has been slower to gain acceptance. Digital radiology potentially offers greater flexibility in image manipulation and display. It also has potential for high density storage of images and both local and long distance transmission of image data. Because of smaller film size and the potential reduction in the number of repeat examinations performed due to exposure errors because of the larger dynamic range of the imaging plate, reduced examinations costs could ensue. Of particular importance in our area, where we are dealing with a pediatric population, is the potential decrease in radiation dosage associated with computed radiology (CR) systems.
