The probability increasing of the low-contrast structures detection in X-Ray images by using the software that enhances the contrast and signal/noise ratio

It was discussed the necessity to use processing software for X-ray images. It was discussed the relevance of such work for children studies. Experiments were carried out on a water phantom, simulating of the child chest, at voltage range 40…100 kV and exposure 1…3 mAs.

The resulting image were processed by software with blocks increasing the contrast and noise reduction. Obtained results suggest the possibility of reducing the voltages and doses for children examination without compromising the quality image.
