Paper Abstract

Anti-crossover films are now available for use with some rare earth intensifying screens. Two such films (Kodak T-Mat G and 3M XUD) were compared to a more conventional emulsion film (Kodak OG) under clinical conditions. Both anti-crossover films exhibited an observable improvement in sharpness, slight increase in visualized mottle and contrast. Speed differences were also observed. Some problems were encountered, but the consensus of most radiologist observers was an improvement in visualization of radiographic information because of this increased sharpness.
