Optimising image quality in digital imaging

Practically the entire veterinary profession has installed digital radiography now. (Ok, there are still practices using film, but they are slideing rapidly towards digital conversion in the near future). Running into veterinary colleagues and friends there is always someone talking about their new great system, how many megapixels it has and how fast the processing is. But if I asked you to name the brand of your system and list whether it is CR or DR, could you answer?

Do you even know what CR or DR is? Does it matter whether you know?

Everyone has a flash high-res camera in their phone these days, but the world is not full of amazing photographic images. Whilst you can put a post-processed filter across your photo to make it look like you really were alive in the '70's, there is only so much that the camoflage will help. The same applies to the digital radiograph - fiddling with the greyscale to improve your image is unlikely to create any massive diagnostic revelations. 

What you really need are sensible tips for improving the digital image in the first place. Think of this session like a masterclass on MasterChef - you already know some stuff but you will learn a lot about improving your technique and feel really good about the results.
