Paper Abstract

The appearance and diagnostic quality of images from Fuji-based computed radiography equipment is dependent upon a series of steps involving both procedural criteria and machine parameters. These steps can be divided into the three general categories of image acquisition, image digitization, and image display. The implementation of an effective quality control program for computed radiography requires an understanding of the interdependence of these three stages of image production, and the development of methods to assess both operator and machine deviations from required performance. Our experience thus far with the implementation of CR in a large scale PACS at 3 medical centers underscores the need for dedicated applications training support, and for a systematic approach to parameter adjustment.
