Abstract

Computed radiography has proved useful as a localization device for computed tomography. In an attempt to evaluate computed radiography as a primary diagnostic device, 16 patients were evaluated with various degrees of gallbladder opacification following standard oral cholecystograms, and 15 patients were evaluated with renal masses, identified on standard excretory urography. Subjective evaluation of computed radiographs as compared to the standard radiographs demonstrated no diagnostic advantage to computed radiography. The poor spatial resolution of the computed radiographs was not overcome by the improvement in contrast resolution.
