Paper Abstract

Occurrence of ghost images on radiographs is a generally feared phenomenon. A method is presented how to evaluate in a quantitative way the photographic effect of long term persistency of radiographic screens. It is shown that the effect not only depends on the radiation intensities present in the preceding exposure(s) but also on the radiation intensities present in the actual exposure. By the method an objective forecast of possible ghost imaging can be made. Results obtained with Curix MR400-screens are presented.
