Paper Abstract

The image quality available on photofluorographic spot films (70,100 or 105 mm) has been gradually improving as high resolution image intensification has evolved. This paper describes that a resolution of 2.5 to 3 line pairs is now available on the Siemen's Videomed H television monitor. Such resolution now approximates that available on 100 mm film. The authors have been using a 70 mm camera to record the television image and have also modified a multiformat camera to record images in fluoroscopic examinations. This development is described and illustrated using clinical examples. The reduction in radiation and film cost is emphasized.
