Digital film library.
NIOSH 1975 Aug; :1-14
Increasing automation of the diagnosis of diseases requires conversion of images on film into a series of digital words representing each point on the film, which can then be read by computers. The diagnosed pneumoconiosis X-ray library of the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare is converted into a high resolution digital data base. The scanning equipment, x-ray setup and scan, and software are described, and the punch format and descriptions for zone reading study are listed.
