Abstract

Line spread functions for four commercially available systems for direct digital intraoral radiography were determined from images of a slit of negligible width. From the fitted line spread functions presampling modulation transfer functions were calculated. The four systems were the Sens-A-Ray (Regam Medical System AB, Sundsvall, Sweden), the VIXA/Visualix (Gendex, Chicago Ill.), the RVG (Trophy Radiologic, Paris, France), and the Flash Dent (Villa Sistemi Medicale srd, Buccinasco, Italy). Digital intraoral radiography is in a state of rapid development, and detectors as well as computer hardware and software are continually modified and improved resulting in successively changing system parameters. As this occurs the present work provides a method that may be used to determine comparable data on future systems.
