Stimulable phosphor cassettes, personal computers, optical discs and optical data cards permit the design of a filmiess radiographic system. X-ray cassettes are read by a laser scanner and images are displayed and stored at the small computer. More than 100 images can be stored on the computer hard disk and recalled by the radiologist for interpretation. Four high resolution monitors permit the system to be used in the same way as a radiographic alternator (multiple viewer). A report can be prepared, the images annotated and the results stored on an optical disc used by the clinic/hospital as a permanent archive. Individual records and images can be copied to credit card-size optical data cards for use by the referring physician or surgeon. The data cards can be displayed on an inexpensive independent viewer. The computer can be coupled to external medical imaging systems, CT, MRI, etc., via an Ethernet port or an ACRINEMA interface. The first system is being developed for the US Army Medical Research and Development Command under Contract DAMD17-88C-8058.
