Quality assessment of digital X-ray chest images using an anthropomorphic chest phantom

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift

Abstract

The current study is focused on determining the optimal tube voltage for the conventional X-ray digital chest screening examinations, using a visual grading analysis method. Chest images of an anthropomorphic phantom were acquired in posterior-anterior projection on four digital X-ray units with different detector types. X-ray images obtained with an anthropomorphic phantom were accepted by the radiologists as corresponding to a normal human anatomy, hence allowing using phantoms in image quality trials without limitations.
