Abstract

Digital and computed radiography are an integral component of clinical and post mortem imaging. Although x-ray tube and detector technology are very similar across vendors, image quality can be drastically different. After this talk, attendees will be able to talk describe the underlying aspects of digital radiographic image quality; explain the effects of noise on image contrast; and list the general steps in digital image processing. We will also provide a basic understanding of image protocol optimization through specific examples of vendor customization.
