Paper Abstract

Autoradiography in biochemical analysis supplies important information, but often requires long exposure times, often measured in weeks, to acquire adequate images. A commercial computed radiography system was utilized to investigate the potential application ofphotostimulable phosphor technology for direct autoradiographic imaging ofsamples labelled with beta-emitting isotopes. It was determined that the wide dynamic range of the photostimulable phosphor imaging plates could provide more information than conventional film autoradiographic techniques, however the plate reading system could not consistently utilize the full extent of the plate's acquired information.
