Paper Abstract

For the evaluation of the imaging capability of radiographic film or film-screen combinations, it is important to know the density increments resulting from known exposure increments or, in other words, to describe the sensitometric properties of a given film or film-screen combination. It is customary (Refs. 1,2) to describe a film or film-screen combination sensitometrically by means of the so-called characteristic or H & D curve: For the sake of convenience, density is usually ploLLed as a function of the logarithm of relative exposure.
