Invention improves image quality of digital radiographic images

Imaging Dynamics (IDC) : 22 May, 2008  (Company News)
IDC (Imaging Dynamics Company) has been awarded a Canadian patent for an invention that balances areas of varying density in a digital radiographic image.
X-ray images and enhance the capability to study otherwise obscured details within a digital image. In addition to the US patent awarded to IDC in February 2008 for dual energy imaging technology, this invention exemplifies the company's commitment to ongoing innovation in digital radiography.

IDC's patent for equalising digital images brings a higher level of detail into the viewable image, and enhances the fine details in the captured image. According to Robin Winsor, IDC's chief technical officer and inventor, 'Applying this digital equalisation method provides a clear advantage over currently available methods by allowing a radiologist to easily see both bony and soft tissue detail in one view, thereby providing a better and faster diagnostic reading of the image.'

By applying this methodology in situations like a chest X-ray, for example, where one rib is obscured by more soft tissue than another, ribs of the same density will show the same absolute brightness irrespective of the amount of obscuring material.

According to IDC president and chief executive officer Tom Boon, 'IDC's commitment to technical innovation provides radiologists with the highest quality digital images to improve their diagnostic capabilities in immediate and tangible ways.'
