Abstract

The practical usefulness of a digital large image intensifier system was tested on 400 consecutive, routine chest examinations. Reading and reporting was carried out directly from the digital images on the TV monitors. For each patient images were also read independently from 100 mm photofluorograms. When the reports for each examination were compared, there was total agreement in reporting in 40% of the cases and clinically insignificant differences in interpretation in 56%. In the remaining 16 patients (4%), the opinion of the observers differed as to whether significant disease was present or not. However, these disagreements could not be related to imaging technique. We believe that a majority of chest examinations can be performed with digital technique and can be read directly from the monitor screen.
