Because of super-positioning of many anatomical structures, detection of subtle lesions on chest radiographs is a challenging task. Bone Suppression software of the Samsung DR system provides an additional image with improved clarity of chest pathology by suppressing the bone structure including ribs and clavicles. Bone Suppression uses only one standard chest image without taking additional images. Therefore, without extra dose, it is able to provide the enhanced visibility of lesions overlaying bone structure in chest image.
