METHODS The system was composed of three kinds of filters (a polarizing filter, a blue-enhancing filter, and a sharp-cut filter Y) and attached to the inferior surface of the(More)
The temporal image subtraction technique was applied to bone scintigraphy, using Photoshop (commercially available image processing software) and Morpher (public domain warping software). For the temporal subtraction images, 81 subtraction images (19 cases) were prepared by a method used to subtract the previous images from the current ones. Registration of(More)
