Steven Mendelsohn, M.D.

The application of new types of image processing can help reduce ionizing radiation X-ray dose and improve image quality in digital radiography (DR) imaging. This presentation discussed how image processing can reduce patient dose in DR.

A method is presented to compare image processing suites utilizing different technologies.

Focusing on the neonatal chest, this comparison methods is applied to demonstrate differences in patient dose, image quality, and retake rate due to image processing from different vendors.

Learning Objectives:

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Explain how radiation dose impacts image quality
  • Describe how image quality and patient dose are improved by image processing
  • Compare image processing systems for purchase or optimization
  • Examine the value of low-dose digital X-ray units

The webinar was presented live July 29, 2015. To view an archive version, REGISTER for the webinar

Intended Audience:

This webinar is intended for radiologists, technologists, and radiology staff directly involved in the purchase, assessment, or optimization of radiography systems.
