Image optimization in a computed-radiography/photostimulable-phosphor system.
Photostimulable phosphor imaging is an exciting new technology that has several advantages over film/screen radiography, the most important of which is the linearity of the photostimulable phosphor system over a wide exposure latitude. The photostimulable phosphor image is digital, and as such, provides options of how the image is viewed by radiologists. This report discusses the various image-processing parameters available for a photostimulable phosphor system and describes a rational approach for selecting these parameters in portable chest radiography. As photostimulable phosphor imaging becomes more widely implemented, an understanding of the processing parameters will facilitate the production of images that take full advantage of the benefits of these systems.
