Digital video subtraction angiography (DVSA) after central intravenous administration of contrast media was used in experimental animals and in patients with suspected coronary artery disease to quantitate left ventricular dimensions and regional and global contractile function. In animals, measurements of left ventricular (LV) volumes, wall thickness,(More)
This review is concerned with the use of video-fluoroscopic images in diagnostic radiology. It particularly emphasizes the potential of such images for performing quantitative procedures such as used in pulmonary and cardiac assessment, evaluation of contrast differentials, and tomographic (including CT) applications. This article also attempts to determine(More)
Previous work in our laboratories and at other institutions has shown that fluoroscopic images recorded on a video disc can be used successfully for producing computerized-axial-tomograms. The work described in this paper gives a quantitative analysis of the capabilities of such imaging systems, in conjunction with a particular method of data processing,(More)
The contrast resolution of modern digital radiographic equipment is primarily limited by quantum mottle. The derivation of the contrast resolution of a system as a function of radiation exposure is presented. Calculations based on this derivation show that achieving 0.8% contrast resolution (128 meaningful gray levels) with 1-mm spatial resolution may(More)
