Paper Abstract

Reciprocity law failure was measured for four brands of medical X-ray films exposed with intensifying screens. Three of the films are green light sensitized for use in combination with green light emitting rare-earth screens. These films showed larger reciprocity failure effects than one conventional blue sensitive film, Dupont Cronex-2. The development conditions had a small effect on reciprocity failure. The effect of reciprocity failure on the measurements of physical image quality parameters is discussed.
