Software, Radiographic/Tomographic System
Definition : Software designed to operate digital radiographic and tomographic (R/T) systems and control/monitor a limited number of the 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 tomographic procedure. Digital radiographic/tomographic system software is intended to work only with one or a few models of R/T systems and related devices, usually supplied by the same manufacturer. This also facilitates the processing and/or sending data from the R/T digital 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 R/T system but may be updated (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the life of the equipment. Dedicated digital radiographic/tomographic system software intended for linear and multidirectional R/T systems is also available.
