The quality of the present day fluoroscopic images is sufficiently high for use as exposure images depending on the environment where the fluoroscopic images are recorded. In some facilities which use fluoroscopic images as exposure images they are recorded with a radiological x-ray diagnostic device equipped with a fluoroscopic storage function. There are, however, cases where fluoroscopic images cannot be used as exposure images because the quality of the fluoroscopic image cannot be assured in the environment where the fluoroscopic images are recorded. This poses problems when stored fluoroscopic images are used in place of exposure images without any clearly established standard. In the present study, we establish that stored fluoroscopic images can be used as exposure images by using gray values obtained from profile curves. This study finds that replacement of stored fluoroscopic images with exposure images requires 20.1 or higher gray scale value differences between the background and signal, using a 20 cm thick acrylic phantom (here an adult abdomen as representing the human body) as the specific geometry. This suggests the conclusion that the gray value can be considered a useful index when using stored fluoroscopic images as exposure images.

Motion picture study of successive images appearing on a fluoroscopic screen.
Use of optic and geometric techniques to enhance radiographic image quality and interpretation. It includes use of microfocal X-ray tubes and intensifying fluoroscopic screens.
Improvement in the quality of an x-ray image by use of an intensifying screen, tube, or filter and by optimum exposure techniques. Digital processing methods are often employed.
Combination or superimposition of two images for demonstrating differences between them (e.g., radiograph with contrast vs. one without, radionuclide images using different radionuclides, radiograph vs. radionuclide image) and in the preparation of audiovisual materials (e.g., offsetting identical images, coloring of vessels in angiograms).
The use of instrumentation and techniques for visualizing material and details that cannot be seen by the unaided eye. It is usually done by enlarging images, transmitted by light or electron beams, with optical or magnetic lenses that magnify the entire image field. With scanning microscopy, images are generated by collecting output from the specimen in a point-by-point fashion, on a magnified scale, as it is scanned by a narrow beam of light or electrons, a laser, a conductive probe, or a topographical probe.
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
