Abstract
Until now the application of computerized digital imaging process has been concentrated in the area of imaging production. A digital imaging process technique has been developed in our experimental work. Based on our preliminary experimental results radiographs of a minimal exposure (about l/4 of the standard exposure) is digitized and can be regenerated with the digital imaging process reported here to yield a digital image with good resolution similar to the radiograph produced by 100% of the standard exposure. This digital imaging process can reduce exposure by a factor of 4 for a radiologic image and hopefully it could be developed for further reduction of radiation exposure per a given radiological study.
