Paper Abstract

The statistical quality of a fluoroscopic examination can be improved without an increase in the dose of radiation delivered to the patient by using an image intensifier to raise the light flux reaching the retina and by further increasing the luminance of the image to the level of photopic vision. All currently used x-ray image intensifiers attempt to accomplish both of these purposes, but, in addition, these devices form the basis of modern television transmission of fluoro-scopic images, cineradiography, and small format ( 70-105 mm ) photography of the image intensifier output image.
