Image Digitization Systems, Computed Radiography, Mammography

Definition : Image digitization systems designed to acquire and digitize computed mammography images for viewing, storing, or printing. The image digitization system typically consists of an exposure unit with an imaging receptor, an image reader, and a computer console. The image is acquired on a photostimulatable substance (e.g., a phosphor plate), a reader/digitizer reads the latent image and converts it into an electrical analog signal using a laser scanner; this signal is subsequently amplified and converted to a digital signal, which may be stored and processed by a computer. Computed radiography mammography image digitization systems are typically installed as upgrades to existing film-based radiography/mammography systems.
