Paper Abstract

Medical innovations require rigorous testing on a number of levels to determine their applicability to clinical practice. This presentation describes our experiments with phosphor-plate digital radiography to determine whether this technology can replace conventional radiography for selected applications of urologic and chest radiology. While our work predominantly focuses on technical efficacy, there are implications for possible improvements in patient outcomes and cost-effectiveness.
