Paper Abstract

Several diagnostic X-ray imaging techniques have been developed over the last few years which are variously called digital radiography, electronic radiography, computed radiography, and digital fluoroscopy. They all have the common element of producing projection radiographic images in a digital form. Some of the advantages proposed for these systems are highly efficient use of dose, scatter reduction, ease of operation, noiseless data transmission, new types of image storage, flexible display capability to exploit the total range of detected information, and a potential for various forms of image manipulation such as edge enhancement, filtering, and subtraction.1-7 Digital radiography will succeed as a diagnostic modality only to the extent that these advantages over the well entrenched analog radiography are truly realized.
