CCD vs laser a comparative study of two types of x-ray film digitizers

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


A study was undertaken to determine if there were significant differences between the accuracy of diagnoses and perceived image quality between CCD and Laser digitized images. Film examinations were conducted which represent current radiology practice and the expectation that teleradiology may be used for primary diagnosis. Preliminary results support the hypothesis that there are no significant differences in the accuracy of diagnoses made on softcopy displays between radiographic images digitized using CCD and Laser digitizers.
