Image quality versus optimization

Image quality plays an essential role in radiographic dose optimisation. Optimisation involves producing an image with acceptable image quality and low patient radiation dose (ALARP principle) (Department of Health, 2007; ICRP, 2006). Estimates of the radiation dose received by patients are relatively easy to make; by contrast, image quality assessments …

Effect of serum fibroblast growth factor receptor 2 and CAPS proteins on calcium status in βthalassaemia major patients who are free from overt inflammation

ABSTRACT : Bone disorders and disturbed calcium (Ca) homeostasis are common disorders in b-thalassaemia major (b-TM). In the present study, two bone related markers are studied in b-TM patients with negative C-reactive protein for the first time; fibroblast growth factor receptor 2 (FGFR2) and CAPS protein. Another goal is to …

Computed versus analogue radiography

Despite the numerous differences between CR and analogue, they share one feature in common: their response to radiation exposure. Anatomical information is acquired in analogue radiography after the X-ray photons pass through the object and carry information concerning the region of interest.  Following this, a screen absorbs the photons’ energy, …
