Recording of Fluoroscopic Images

 

Fluoroscopic images can be recorded for later viewing by sev-eral methods. The TV image can be recorded using a video-tape recorder or a videodisc recorder, the latter having the advantage of being able to view one frame at a time as well as providing random access rather than the sequential viewing required by videotape.

 

In addition, some systems have the capability of digitizing the electric signal from a TV frame and storing it in computer memory chips. These systems often have a “last image hold” capability that holds the last TV frame on the monitor. This method is also used in digital subtraction angiography (DSA); that is, the analog signal from the TV camera is digi-tized and stored frame by frame in a computer memory in a 512 512 or 1024 1024 image matrix. A short radi-ographic x-ray pulse is usually used for making the image. Images made just before and after injection of contrast mate-rial into the arteries can be subtracted digitally, so that only the vascular system appears in the subtracted image.
