Paper Abstract

Film based radiography accounts for about 60% of the case load in community medical imaging departments. This includes chest, gastrointestinal, breast and general radiography. To date, most of the work has been devoted to the conversion of these procedures from film to digital image acquisition techniques so as to facilitate their integration into digital Picture Archive and Communication Systems (PACS). While most efforts in this area have been directed toward the conversion of chest radiography, in this report the authors describe a technique for digital radiography of the wrist using a 33 cm image intensifier (II).
