NIOSH Guideline: Application of Digital Radiography for the Detection and Classification of Pneumoconiosis

August 2011
DHHS (NIOSH) Publication Number 2011-198
cover of 2011-198

This NIOSH Guideline is based upon accepted contemporary professional recommendations, and provides technical and operational guidance for radiographic facilities and physician readers who obtain digital chest radiographs for the evaluation of pneumoconiosis. The intent is to assure that the recognition of pneumoconiosis using digitally-acquired chest radiographs is at least as safe and effective as traditional film screen radiography
