Paper Abstract

The properties of a novel dry medical recording system are presented in this paper. This system, developed through a cooperative effort between Sterling Diagnostic Imaging and Tektronix Corporation, is based on offset phase change solid inkjet technology and renders very stable, diagnostic quality medical images. A new technique of combining microdroplets of ink to construct grayscale is used and in most cases for a given gray level several possible combinations arise. Although these redundancies provide equivalent optical density, the resulting noise can vary considerably and criteria used to minimize the noise are reviewed.
