Paper Abstract

Disc recorders and image storage tubes are now being used with fluoroscopic television systems as a means for reducing patient ex-posure to x-rays. Electronic image storage systems also permit a number of methods for image processing and new techniques have been developed for absorption edge imaging, catheter placement, electronic spot-filming and pulsed fluoroscopy. In many cases, the image storage device may be credited with a reduction of patient exposure because the original system was not optimized. While storage devices do permit reductions of patient exposure, first consideration must be given to proper design and operation of the original system.
