Paper Abstract

A special cassette was designed to enhance radiographic image contrast using two intensifying screens which preferentially absorb in different regions of the x-ray energy spectrum, and which expose corresponding emulsions. The emulsions are developed in subtractive colors to display the structure of interest as variations in both intensity and hue. Theoretical expressions for contrast enhancement available with various screen combinations were made. Preliminary phantom color radiographs show the potential of this technique for contrast enchancement.
