Abstract

Two basic approaches to digital radiography have been thoroughly investigated in the last decade. In one, the traditional video chain is modified, and the output of the camera is digitized and analyzed by a computer to produce an image of the area of the body being examined. The other approach uses a linear detector array to generate a sequential series of line images as the array is scanned across the area being observed; the line images are then combined by a computer to form a two-dimensional image. The authors are investigating the characteristics of a third method, a prototype digital radiography system in which two-dimensional diode arrays (CCD) are fiberoptically coupled directly to either a scintillating fiberoptic plate or to a fluorescent screen. In this paper they describe the concepts and design configuration of this approach, as well as preliminary results from several phantom studies. The results indicate that high resolution, high signal-to-noise ratio imaging can be attained with this method.
