Digital radiography (Digital CR) was first introduced in the 80s  when the first radiograms were recorded on phosphorus-coated digital cassettes.  The advantages of digital radiograms include manipulation of digital data at various stages between image acquisition and final interpretation. A wide dynamic range is obtained II. DIGITAL RADIOGRAPHY COMPUTED RADIOGRAPHY (CR) With CR the film is replaced with a flexible Image Plate (IP) which is coated with a phosphor layer. The radiography is carried out in the same way as with film, with the IP inside a light-tight cassette. Once exposed, the IP is returned to a darkened area for processing Since the shift away from screen-film radiography, imaging facilities have two basic choices for digital radiography systems: computed radiography (CR) or digital radiography (DR). With ongoing technological advancements and the significant reduction in price, DR is rapidly becoming the preferred choice
Digital and Computed Radiography systems each offer different advantages and disadvantages over each other. Many actually consider digital radiography X-Ray systems as the next step from computed radiography system owing to the greater safety and image quality advantages that these have to offer. As someone considering adding an X-ray system to. Computed radiography (CR) and digital radiography (DR) are rapidly replacing screen-film imaging systems in many countries. Both are similar in technology except for the image receptor. CR uses photostimulable phosphor (PSP) plates which must be transported to a digital scanner (or reader) and scanned with a laser beam to convert the stored. Computed Radiography (CR)...is the generic term applied to an imaging system comprised of: Photostimulable Storage Phosphor to acquire the x-ray projection image CR ReadCR Readerer to extract the electronic latent image Digital electronics to convert the signals to digital form CR Image Acquisition Phosphor plate X-ray system 1.

Detective quantum efficiencies of screen-film, general-purpose computed radiography (GP-CR), high-resolution computed radiography (HR-CR), and selenium-based digital radiography (DR) systems. The detective quantum efficiencies (DQEs) were measured using 4 different standardized radiation quality beam qualities, with higher radiation quality. Digital imaging is becoming widely used in diagnostic radiology, and digital subtraction angiography (DSA) is now generally accepted [1-3]. Several studies have evaluated digital imaging using a computed radiography system for chest examinations [4-10] and for excretory urography  . This prospective study uses receiver operating curve analysis [12 , 13] to compare the diagnostic accuracy. 13.06.2018 Current Developments in Digital Radiography and CT 2 Outline Conversion of film radiography to digital radiography Repeat the success story of optical photography (1990 -2000) Scatter radiography with single sided access New X-ray optics Application for aerospace components Computed Tomography (CT) and Laminograph COMPUTED RADIOGRAPHY IN NDT APPLICATIONS E.
