Paper Abstract

The various occupational responsibilities of the persons selected for this panel is an acknowledgement of the fact that when one considers field tests he must also consider the condition of the field in which he finds himself. I find myself enclosed in two fields. One is that in which the intensifier can be set up in a laboratory for sophisticated measurements. The other is that in which the intensifier is a component of an assembled fluoroscopy system and can be removed only at the expense of great irritation on the part of the radiologist. In this latter field, absolute measurements can be carried out only with a low degree of sophistication and a high degree of uncertainty. These measurements should be expected to yield numbers for comparison purposes only. In the first field, some of my remarks will undoubtedly overlap those of the two panel members from industry. I shall try to keep this overlap to a minimum. In the second field, overlap can be expected with the remarks of Dr. Shea on the users point of view. I will also try to keep this overlap to a minimum. Possibly, some diametrically opposed remarks will be made and a real discussion develop within and without the panel.
