Paper Abstract

Radiographic screens with improved phosphors were evaluated in terms of their impact on image quality and system design. Using tungstate screens as a reference it was shown that system performance can be improved by reducing one or more of the following parameters: MAS, KVP, Focal Spot Size, and Exposure Time. In the case of cardiovascular angiography for instance, maximum benefit was obtained by reductions in exposure time and focal spot size.
