What is computed radiography (CR)?

In CR, a photostimulable storage phosphor plate is used to transiently store a latent image following an x-ray exposure in the form of electrons trapped within the phosphor. This latent image is then extracted offline by a separate laser-based device that scans the plate to create a softcopy digital radiographic image that is stored electronically. CR eliminates the need to store hardcopy radiographic film and improves the ability to adjust the brightness and contrast of the digital image as needed.
