Paper Abstract

A proposed ANSI standard for classifying radiographic intensifier screens has been under test at the National Bureau of Standards. This standard establishes procedures for characterizing, on an absolute basis, the optical spectral output of fluorescent screens per unit of incident x-ray exposure. The testing procedure has undergone revision since an earlier status report was given. Calcium tungstate screens, however, still form the basis of comparison in this procedure because of the long acceptability and stable output qualities of this screen. The nature of the revisions and current output data on the screens will be described.
