    Abstract:
    Images of two phantoms were obtained with use of an advanced multiple-beam equalization radiography system, and scatter fractions were estimated with use of a photostimulable phosphor imaging system. Scatter fractions in the equalized images were lower in the mediastinum-equivalent areas and higher in the lung-equivalent areas, relative to images that were conventionally acquired with use of an antiscatter grid. The differences are attributed to a reduction in incident exposure in the lungs and the presence of cross-scatter between lung and mediastinal regions.
