Digital radiography equipment: Exploring your options

Sarah M. Puchalski

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This article provides an overview of the technologies used for primary capture of radiographic information. Before the information is useful it must undergo image processing that may involve several steps that vary in complexity. Image processing contributes in large part to the differences in image appearance when evaluating the finished product. Although there are marked technical differences among the radiographic systems from the different vendors, much of the difference in image quality will depend on the vendors' ability to effectively process the image and not necessarily on the type of equipment used to obtain the image. CR is a relatively inexpensive system of digital radiography that shares a similar workflow with film-based radiography. DR technologies enable veterinarians to generate radiographic images within seconds of acquisition.
