How Can Bone Suppression Improve Chest Radiographic Images?

Medray News

Date written : 09/04/2014

Chest radiography is vital to diagnosing lung diseases. A high signal-to-noise-ratio (SNR) is crucial if an image is to be determined as appropriate for diagnosis, and it becomes the mission of the acquisition system to leave as much noise out as possible.  Media Library - Bone SUP

Bones, specifically the posterior ribs and clavicles, are the usual noise culprits in chest imaging. The ability to decrease that noise can provide radiographers with an improved, well-defined image, and allow the radiologist to make the proper diagnosis.  

A tool such as bone suppression software allows the noise of the ribs to be significantly decreased and require no additional procedure or radiation dose. The software is designed to suppress the high-contrast bone structures while maintaining the contrast-detail level, as closely as possible to that of the original images.

Learn more about this technology and the process of Carestream’s Bone Suppression Software (having recently received FDA approval and being part of the Directview v5.7 release) in the whitepaper, Bone Suppression for Chest Radiographic Images.
