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