Abstract

CRI gives satisfactory images at 5% reduction of the standard film-screen dose. Based on comparison with a 1,200 speed film-screen system, CRI provides equal or better image quality at a similar radiation dose. The cost of CRI is higher than for film-screen radiography, but wide latitude and the ability to tailor dose with requirements for image quality are significant advantages for CRI.
