Abstract

Computed digital radiography offers a number of potential advantages over conventional filmscreen imaging. To determine the applicability of these to portable neonatal examinations we performed a controlled prospective study comparing conventional 200 speed film-screen with a computed radiography unit in an animal model. Images acceptable for diagnostic purposes were obtained on the digital system over an exposure range many orders of magnitude greater than was possible on the film-screen system. Digital imaging offers potential for elimination of repeat examinations due to suboptimal exposure factors, and for reduction in radiation dose to the patient. We believe that computed digital radiography should be particularly suited to portable neonatal imaging.
