Since the images provided by computed radiography (CR) are generally easier to evaluate than the images obtained with the conventional X-ray technique, both mammography and neck roentgenography would appear to be good applications for CR. However, in a strict sense, CR is poor in its capacity to depict the fine detail of microcalcifications in the breast compared with the nonscreen technique. It seems that this problem comes from the limitation of the spatial resolution with the present equipment.
