Abstract
Digital x-ray imaging will soon become dominant in the United States. The advent of digital x-ray imaging offers a number of opportunities and challenges to organizations and individuals involved in evaluating lung images for occupational lung disease. In addressing these challenges, NIOSH needs to remain current, to be able to serve the needs of workers now and into the future and to fulfill its legislative mandates. NIOSH must move rapidly to adopt digital x-ray radiographic technology for the B reader program, and yet, it must remain flexible so as to be able to adapt to new technologies as they inevitably become available. These decisions will require appropriate expertise, resources, administrative commitment, and leadership of the agency.
