Paper Abstract

A scanning beam system with feedback equalization is described. This offers the reduction in scattered radiation with a pair of moving slits and the regional manipulation of incident x-ray exposure to compress large variations in trans-mitted film exposure to fit within the useful exposure range of radiographic film. When applied to chest radiography, this allows maximum soft tissue contrast in the retrodiaphragmatic, retro-cardiac, mediastinal and lung field regions. The scan time to expose a 14" x 17" chest film is 5 seconds with either a one-dimensional slit scan or a two-dimensional raster scan. By manipulation of the feedback scheme, considerable variation in low frequency contrast can be obtained.
