  1. Chotas, H.G. and Floyd, C.E., Jr. and Dobbins, J.T., III and Lo, J.Y. and Ravin, C.E., Scatter fractions in AMBER imaging, Radiology (USA), vol. 177 no. 3 (1990), pp. 879 - 80 .

    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
