OBJECTIVES for CR Presentation
Upon completion of this section the student should be able to:
1. Explain the differences between film screen detection and processing of the latent
image and computed radiography detection and processing of the latent image.
2. Define: terms related to computed radiography and digital imaging.
3. Explain the difference between spatial resolution and contrast resolution
4. Explain the term Dynamic Range
5. Relate how a photostimulable phosphor plate captures a latent image.
6. Explain how the computed radiography latent image is processed to produce a visible image.
7. Discuss the process of creating a digital image from analog information.
8. Explain the differences in exposure technique for computed radiography versus film screen radiography.
9. Explain how the energy spectrum required for computed radiography differs from the image spectrum used in film screen radiography.
