Well ladies and gentlemen, Dr. Rossmann, I would like to follow in the same line as presented this morning in the keynote address by Dr. Elder and in the opening remarks for this session presented so clearly by Dr. Rossmann. What I would like to address myself to is maximizing the utility of the radiographic test and minimizing patient exposure. Now, maximizing utility -- it has to be utility as to diagnostic information. What I would like to address myself to is an area of investigation that actually starts by considering the MTF as the starting point, and the end point is the recognition by the radiologist of some pathological or anatomical detail of relevance.
