Abstract

Skeletal radiography accounts for a large proportion of the plain film images generated in most radiology departments, yet it has been underemphasized in the investigation of digital imaging technologies. Unique features of skeletal radiography provide a challenge in the evaluation and investigation of digital skeletal imaging. This review summarizes the results of ongoing research in digital skeletal radiography. Elementary concepts of digital imaging are reviewed to provide a foundation for discussion of nominal contrast and resolution requirements for clinically useful digital skeletal radiography. Methods of acquiring digital skeletal images are reviewed, and digital image display, image compression, and basic image processing techniques are discussed with emphasis on specific skeletal applications.
