The addition of digital image collection and storage to standard and newly developed x-ray imaging techniques has allowed spectacular improvements in some diagnostic procedures. There is no reason to expect that the developments in this area are yet complete. But no matter what further developments occur in this field, all the techniques will share a common element, digital image storage and processing. This common element alone determines some of the important imaging characteristics. These will be discussed using one system, the Medical MICRODOSE System as an example.
