Paper Abstract

By local variation of exposure, the wide absorption-range of the thorax can be equalized. Normally, the X-ray spectrum remains constant during this process. Further improvement seems possible if the radiation quality is included in the equalization process. A system has been built to investigate the merits of such a process. An overall improvement of contrast is demonstrated.
