Abstract : The decreasing Federal budget and increasing demand for quality healthcare warrants using cost effective state-of-the-art technology in Department of Defense medical treatment facilities. The purpose of this thesis is to compare state-of-the-art digital imaging with conventional film-based imaging technology at two Army Medical Centers. The baseline activity for the study was Fitzsimons Army Medical Center and the digital alternative used was Madiagan Army Medical Center. The Medical Digital Imaging Support (MDIS) has been operational at Madigan, the first DoD facility to use the equipment, since early 1992.
