Image Digitization Systems
Definition : Systems that use computing devices (e.g., computers, monitors, digital storage units) to display, process, and store digital data usually obtained through an analog-to-digital converter from a TV camera or from a charge-coupled device (CCD). These systems are capable of processing the image data for hard-copy printing on a laser imager, archiving the digitized image (e.g., on an optical disk), and/or coupling to a hospital picture archiving and communication system (PACS) network. Digital imaging systems are frequently used to add digital capabilities (upgrade) to existing imaging systems (e.g., film radiographic or fluoroscopic units and systems).
