  • Current digital imaging for the otolaryngologist. Current opinion in otolaryngology & head and neck surgery Blevins, N. H., Lustig, L. R. 2003; 11 (3): 166-172


    Digital imaging has arrived as a standard tool for the otolaryngologist. There is no better evidence of this than the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery moving to an all-digital format for its 2003 national meeting. No longer will 35-mm slide projectors be available for any presentations in the country's largest otolaryngology program. Also, all of the major journals in the field now accept or require digital files of illustrations and photographs. With this change in standard, the question is no longer if, or even when to incorporate digital imaging techniques, but how to do so most efficiently. This can be quite a challenge, given the ever-changing field of computer technology. This article is intended to introduce the fundamentals of digital imaging, and how this technology can best be integrated into an otolaryngology practice.
