Kodak introduces processing software

Eastman Kodak has launched a new software package for processing computed radiography images. The Rochester, NY, company’s enhanced visualization processing (EVP) software divides CR images into low- and high-frequency components, and increases image latitude while maintaining its contrast. Kodak believes that the new software improves clinicians’ view of the imaged anatomy, particularly in difficult exams such as those for trauma lateral cervical spine.

The program reduces the contrast of the low-frequency part of the image while increasing the contrast of the high-frequency part. It then recombines the two components for display or printing. The company plans to offer Kodak EVP software as an option for its Kodak Digital Science computed radiography systems.
