Implementation of a Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) is a system integration task and requires the knowledge of multidisciplinary fields. This paper reviews current PACS development with emphasis on radiological images. The following topics are covered: methods of image acquisition, image compression, storage, display, communication, and(More)
The principle of light photon equalization (LPE) is to modulate the light source during X-ray film digitization so that the dynamic range of the transmitted light into a photo-detector can be precisely controlled to obtain improved signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). The modulation of the light source is derived from a smoothed image of the original digitized(More)
Artifacts seen on laser digitized radiographs are analyzed and mathematically explained based on the concept of image contrast. Our investigation considered the following determinants: (a) laser spot size, (b) signal processing components, (c) image characteristics, and (d) observer performance. A functional relationship between the sampling interval, laser(More)
