Abstract
We have made preliminary image quality measurements (modulation transfer function and noise power spectrum) measurements on a digital scanned projection radiography system developed in our laboratory. The DSPR system images the light output of a scanning strip of intensifying screen onto a time-delay-Wand--integrate scanning CCD imager with a high speed lens. The data show that the current design is limited in spatial resolution compared to a screen film system. In the current CCD camera electronic noise dominates both Wiener spectrum and MTF near the resolution limit. Noise power spectrum measurements indicate that the current DSPR system, with a relatively large amount of electronic noise, requires exposures an order of magnitude higher to achieve DQE comparable to screen/film systems. However, for clinical situations in which scattered radiation is a significant factor an advanced prototype DSPR with improved analog electronics is predicted to have DQE comparable to screen/film/grid systems at comparable doses. Development of a low noise DSPR system is currently underway.
