Computed Radiography (CR) in Radiology Applications

11 July, 2011 | Computed Radiography

What is Computed radiography (CR)? Computed radiography (CR) is a cost-effective solution to move from analog to digital imaging. With computed radiography (CR) the transition to digital is completed by installing computed radiography (CR) readers and replacing X-ray cassettes (which use X-ray film) with computed radiography (CR) cassettes (which use imaging plates). The imaging plates [...]

The Basics of Digital Radiology (DR)

27 June, 2011 | Digital Radiology

What is Digital Radiology (DR)? Digital radiology (DR) is a form of x-ray imaging, where digital x-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film. Advantages of digital radiology (DR) include time efficiency, as a result of being able to do without the standard chemical processing, as well as the ability to digitally transfer and [...]
