Kappa statistics were used to evaluate the agreement between the observers for the identification of the interalveolar foramina on the diagnostic radiographic films, and on the films with the radiopaque shadowing of the wire.
[22] The incorrect processing of a radiographic film can lead to inaccurate radiographic analyses.
The 214-bed hospital will use KODAK DIRECTVIEW PACS System 5 for the storage and management of digital patient images and related information, KODAK DIRECTVIEW CR 500 and CR 950 Computed Radiography Systems for digital capture of X-ray images, and a KODAK DRYVIEW 8900 Laser Imaging System to print digital imaging studies to radiographic film. The department performs more than 50,000 radiographic imaging studies a year.
Finally, the supplementary study of transmissions of 25 cases using televised radiographic film showed no diagnostic differences between the televised evaluations and direct evaluations when the televised evaluations were above 200 lines and special optical lenses and scanning techniques were utilized (Telemedicine Research Center, 1997).
On radiographic film, the image of a discontinuity or void appears in most instances as a dark shadow, representing the local increase in the transmission of radiation because of the effective reduction in metal thickness in the path of the beam.
However, an accessory device not previously addressed is radiographic film markers.
Today, computed radiography systems are viewed as an effective and efficient method of delivering radiographic images in critical care imaging where demanding conditions made it difficult for radiographers to obtain consistent image quality on radiographic film.
