"Digital Radiography" is a generic term which has evolved recently to aescribe a collection of novel radiographic modalities where the primary image recording is accompiisheo through the use of x-ray-sensitive electronic detectors, rather than by the conventional use of phosphor screens ano silver-halide-based films. The electronic aetectors provide occult electronic signals which must be processed to render them ultimately visible and thus accessible to the oiagnostician -- in the short term for oiagnosis, in the long term for reference. The type of imaging involved is metric both in the spatial ano the luminous dimensions, with strong requirements for imaging repeatability and image element signal integrity.
