Description

Terminology such as flat panel detectors, charge-coupled devices, automatic rescaling, and edge enhancement are now commonplace in the clinical setting. Unlike the days of screen-film imaging, where technology evolved steadily but relatively slower, digital imaging has earned its spot in the fast lane of technological changes. Rapid advancements in the application of existing imaging detectors and the advent of new technologies present challenges for radiographers in keeping current with these changes. In this one-hour Zoom Webinar, radiographers will be provided with an overview of technological advancements in medical imaging.

This is a Live Webinar event.
