Paper Abstract

It is shown that the level of magnification which is optimal is similar for both high speed rare-earth intensifying screens and medium-speed calcium-tungstate screens. The amount of perceivable information obtained with calcium-tungstate screens is, however, higher than that obtained with rare-earth screens. This difference is attributed to the increased radiographic mottle in the rare-earth screens.
