What is Computed Radiography (CR)?
CR is an imaging cassette-based digital radiography technology. CR Technology is a cost-effective solution to move from darkroom technology to digital imaging technology. With CR equipment and solutions, the migration to digital is completed by installing CRs and replacing X-ray film cassettes with CR phosphor imaging plates & cassettes. The imaging plates are exposed to radiation then inserted into the CR reader. The CR equipment scans the imaging plates then digitally displays the image on the workstation’s QC screen, and finally erases the imaging plate for immediate reuse.
