Teleradiology image transmission system: diagnostic accuracy at three matrix sizes for various types of images

J Digit Imaging. 1990 Aug;3(3):170-3. doi: 10.1007/BF03167603.


The interpretability of transmitted digitized radiographic images is an important factor in the operation and use of teleradiology systems. Matrix size may influence diagnostic accuracy of the interpretation. Commercially available equipment has certain built-in image enhancement controls that may increase the interpretability of the image received. Evaluation of the effect of varying the matrix size and other factors on diagnostic accuracy are described.
