Author Affiliations +
Digital Video Fluorography (DVF) systems [1] provide digital radiography and digital fluoroscopy for the conventional radiographic and fluoroscopy (RR) rooms. During fluoroscopic examinations, DVF system's digital radiographic imaging ability replaces the conventional 100-mm photospot film camera and cassette spot film devices. The acceptance of the DVF system is highly dependent on its image quality. A DVF imaging system (S &S Inficon's FC1000) [2] is designed to produce high quality digital radiographic images. The image quality is dependent on the quality of the imaging chain including the x-ray source, image intensifier, video camera, digital system and hard copy device. This paper will only discuss the digital imaging portion of the imaging chain which include the video camera, the digital system and the hard copy device. The performance characteristics of each component of the digital imaging chain including the video camera, video digitization, image matrix size, image enhancement algorithms and hard copy device will be discussed.
