Digital Artifacts
Uncollimated edges- if the image
collimation is not parallel to the
imaging plate then the borders
wont be recognized and it will be
a result of an unsharp image.
- This pelvis shows more
density on the right side
due to collimation being
too tight or under
Ghosting artifact- this occurs
when primary erasure is not
As you can see there are 2 images.
A pelvis was taken and not erased
sufficiently because you can see it
in the background of the chest x-

Underexposure- this chest x-ray

was underexposed and shows
grainy quality so quantum mottle
is evident.
White and gray image

Overexposure- this chest x-ray

was overexposed due to the
darkening of the image and shows
no detail of the lungs.
Black and white image
Improper Grid usage (moire
pattern)- this radiograph of a skull
shows wavy radiolucent lines that
was caused by an incorrect usage
of a grid

Dirt on the light -there was dirt

over a light or a beam deflector
and it shows a radiopaque line
going down the right side of the
abdomen radiograph.
This can be fixed by washing the
cassette once a week with
anhydrous alcohol.

Histogram Error is when the

wrong preprocessing histogram is
chosen and it is applied to the
image resulting a rescaling error.
This is an operator error that
leaves the image with poor
density and lack of contrast
