Software, Digital Radiographic System
Definition : Software designed to operate digital radiography systems and control/monitor a limited number of the radiographic system functions. This software usually interacts with the x-ray subsystem, detectors, and monitors. It may also perform a variety of algorithms to facilitate the operation and analysis of the data and images obtained during the radiographic procedure. Digital radiographic system software is intended to work only with one or a few models of radiographic systems and related devices, usually supplied by the same manufacturer. This also facilitates the processing and/or sending of data from the digital radiographic system to and from picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) and/or other hospital information systems. The software is not usually available separate from the radiographic system but may be updated (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the life of the equipment. Dedicated digital radiography system software intended for chest, dental, mammographic, and other radiographic procedures is also available.
