A new class of diagnostic imaging systems, loosely termed Digital Radiography, has emerged during the past year from the laboratory into the forefront of radiological practice. These systems have in common the acquisition of a two dimensional projection image in digital format but include a variety of detectors, techniques and applications. Digital radiography apparatus are conveniently divided into point scanned, line scanned and area systems. Each system is briefly described and its performance capabilities are reviewed. Digital video radiography is given added emphasis due to its rapid development for intravenous angiography. The key requirements and present limitations of major components of the video system are noted. Gross specifications of the next generation of computers for digital radiography are postulated.
