Sample text

Development: if a photographic emulsion is used to capture the image, then optimum radiographic contrast can be attained only if the film is developed to the correct film contrast. This is achieved by careful control of factors such as developer temperature, development time and processing chemical activity. To ensure this, the film processor must be subject to a rigid quality-control regime. Subjective contrast depends upon the following: • • • • • 16 Radiographic contrast. The observer: poor eyesight, fatigue.

This means that the radiographer has much less margin for error when selecting exposure factors before making an exposure. It is relatively easy to overexpose or underexpose an image compared with other image-acquisition devices. A variety of systems are available in which the screen and film can be varied to suit a particular task. Thus, the speed and resolution can be changed in any given clinical situation by selecting a different film and screen. Graduated or asymmetric systems have been used to enhance spine and chest radiography, where the subject contrast is high.

A summary of the methods used to reduce different types of unsharpness is shown in the table below. Unfortunately, the factors in group A are interrelated, and attempts to reduce one form of unsharpness will tend to increase another. For example, if one chooses to use fine-grained screens to reduce photographic unsharpness, then an increase in mAs may be required, which could lead to a longer exposure time, thus increasing the possibility of movement unsharpness. This increase in mAs may in turn require an increase in focal spot size due to the additional thermal stresses on the anode, and there will be an increase in geometric unsharpness as a consequence of this.
