Acquisition Interface for Computed Radiography
Digital interface to the Philips Computed Radiography (PCR) units 701 and 9000 is not available as a standard component. Custom interfaces have been constructed using hardware and software techniques to achieve automatic data link without affecting the operational procedure or or slowing down the PCR. A complete acquisition interface design includes polling text patient information, image reformatting to the UCLA standard, and software interface to the network and database. Finally, an ethernet interface to the Luminsys computed radiograph plate reader is also reported.
