This is the second edition of a well-received book that enriches the understanding of radiographers and radiologic technologists across the globe, and is designed to meet the needs of courses (units) on radiographic imaging equipment, procedures, production, and exposure. The book also serves as a supplement for courses that address digital imaging techniques, such as radiologic physics, radiographic equipment and quality control. In a broader sense, the purpose of the book is to meet readers’ needs in connection with the change from film-based imaging to film-less or digital imaging; today, all radiographic imaging worldwide is based on digital imaging technologies. The book covers a wide range of topics to address the needs of members of various professional radiologic technology associations, such as the American Society of Radiologic Technologists, the Canadian Association of Medical Radiation Technologists, the College of Radiographers in the UK, and the Australian and New Zealand Societies for Radiographers.

Digital radiography is a general term describing any projection radiological system in which the image exists in digital form at some stage between acquisition and viewing. In an earlier form, radiographic films were dig itized in an attempt to enhance and redisplay information of interest. The field has evolved to its current state, in which X-ray signals are detected electronically, converted to digital form, and processed prior to being recorded and displayed. A primary goal of digital radiography is the re moval of interfering effects from secondary structures in an image, so that clinically significant details can be displayed with enhanced visibility. The achievement of this goal involves many parameters, including con trast agents, subtraction techniques, processing techniques, filtering tech niques, system noise, and quantitative aspects. It is the purpose of this book to present material by noted individuals in the field covering several of the above topics.

This book examines the use of state-of-the-art technology to achieve filmless radiology, describing its impact on healthcare systems and providing valuable insights into reengineering healthcare. Sharing expertise developed in implementing Picture Archival and Communications System (PACS) technology capable of supporting filmless radiology, it relates experiences at the Baltimore Veterans Administration Medical Center (VAMC), the first site to have a fully operational filmless radiology system. The book will provide an overview of filmless radiology with advice on acquiring PAC systems. Also included are sections on its impact on the practice of radiology and the delivery of health care (filmless radiology is central to teleradiology), clinical uses of computed radiography, technological issues, and case studies from both inside and outside the VA system.
