Abstract
Several technical characteristics of digital fluorography are discussed. A derivation is made for the noise levels in the acquisition of digital fluorographic video images. The importance of high video signal-to-noise ratio is demonstrated and discussed. A noise analysis is made for reprocessing amplified difference images from analog video disk. It is shown that under the most stringent circumstances a disk with a signal-to-noise ratio of 200:1 increases the rms noise by at most 7%. Potential artifacts associated with the measurement of iodine sensitivity for digital radiographic systems are discussed. A phantom is presented which eliminates such artifacts. Experimental digital fluorographic phantom images are shown.
