Imaging Dynamics Company (IDC), a digital radiography developer, has been awarded a Canadian patent for an invention that balances areas of varying density in a digital radiographic image.
The invention provides a method to improve the quality, contrast and sharpness of digital x-ray images and enhance the capability to study otherwise obscured details within a digital image, according to the Calgary, Alberta-based company. IDC also obtained a U.S. patent in February for dual energy imaging technology.
