Software, Image Digitization System, Computed Radiography
Definition : Image digitization system software designed to operate systems that process and store digital data and image radiographic data obtained from an external source (e.g., phosphor plate) and control/monitor a limited number of the system functions. This software usually interacts with devices used in the procedure, such as computers, digital storage recorders, and monitors. It may also perform a variety of algorithms to facilitate the operation and analysis of the data obtained from a data and/or image source. The software is intended to work only with one or a few models of digitization systems and related devices, usually supplied by the same manufacturer. This also facilitates the processing and/or sending data from the digitization system to and from picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) and/or other hospital information systems. Computed radiography digitization system software is not usually available separate from the digitization system but may be updated (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the life of the equipment. Dedicated computed radiography digitization system software intended for specific data and images obtained in dental, mammographic, and other particular procedures is available.
