K edge subtraction images have been produced using a digital video image processor. Images formed by three filtered X ray beams are detected by an image intensifier Plumbicon system, digitized, and combined in real time to produce bone and tissue free K edge subtraction images of iodinated structures. Preliminary studies of rhesus monkey cranial, spinal, and abdominal structures are compared with those of conventional radiography.
