Musculoskeletal computed radiography in children: scatter reduction and improvement in bony trabecular sharpness using air gap placement of the imaging plate


The effect of various air gaps on computed radiographic musculoskeletal images was investigated using a knee phantom. Scatter to primary radiation ratios were measured using the beam stop method at air gaps ranging from 0 to 30 in. (0-762-mm). Bony trabecular sharpness, line pair resolution, quantum mottle and visualization of low-contrast beads in the soft… (More)
