Radiographic imaging of large patients is compromised by x-ray scatter. Optimization of digital x-ray imaging systems used for projection radiography requires the use of the best possible antiscatter grid. The performance of antiscatter grids used in conjunction with digital x-ray imaging systems can be characterized through measurement of the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) improvement factor (K(SNR)). The SNR improvement factor of several linear, focused antiscatter grids was determined from… CONTINUE READING
