Radiographic Systems, Digital, Chest

Definition : Digital radiographic systems designed for imaging of the thorax with the patient standing (i.e., in vertical position). These systems consist of a chest (up-right) radiography unit including an image receptor (e.g., a phosphor, amorphous silicon, or amorphous selenium image plate), and a computerized console. The radiographic image is usually digitally processed. Chest digital radiography systems are used for diagnosing lung disorders (e.g., tuberculosis, cancer), assessing respiratory function, identifying cardiac problems, indicating the need for additional diagnostic tests, and imaging inhaled objects. The standard examination is performed at a long source-to-image distance, typically 182 cm (72 inches).
