What you'll learn

The Discovery of computers had led to many changes in the present world in terms of information technology, medical technology, banking, schooling, hospital administration, etc. Medical imaging is dependent on the computer for most aspects of acquiring and processing the image, and for subsequent transmission and storage of the recorded more »»

Both computed radiography (CR) and digital radiography (DR) require the use of digital technologies that rely on computer networks and high-bandwidth web facilities. Computer radiography also known as film replacement technology uses a flexible imaging plate to capture digital images instead of conventional photographic film. The image receptor is held in a similar casing (cassette) to that of the traditional film screen. Computed radiography harnesses the absorption of radiation, trapping electrons at energy levels via the process of photostimulable luminescence.

Computer radiography offers different imaging plates and also there are many scanner control parameters that can be adjusted to optimize image quality and maximize productivity.  It also solves the technical aspects of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures within radiology. Knowledge of computer radiography, how it works, advantages disadvantages, the scope of computer radiography in medicine is essential for medical professionals and radiographic technicians.

This theory course provides an introduction to computer science, the technology used in radiographic imaging, and the difference between digital imaging and computed radiography. It also covers the elements of the digital image and how these affect image quality. If you are studying for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists® (ARRT) registry exams, this module is an ideal learning resource.
