Typical viewing components include: • • • acquisition, reporting and viewing workstations; monitors; laser printers. Acquisition and reporting workstations The acquisition workstation is where the data are initially received and pre-processing will be undertaken. This is true for some manufacturers, but with others this happens within the CR reader. Ideally, if the CR system has been calibrated and operated correctly, the image that appears should not require further processing. Reporting workstations can be a component of the PACS or can be dedicated to a digital unit.

The patient is radiographed and the image appears on the acquisition workstation in a few seconds. Here, the image can be optimized and then sent for reporting or repeated if necessary. An example of a computed radiography plate and cassette Uses CR is used in all areas where film/screen systems are currently used, including mammography. DDR can be used in general radiography and mobile radiography. DDR is very popular in small-field mammography and is being introduced into full-field mammography.
