Kilovoltage bootstrap sensitometry

Academic Article


  • A new method for determining the sensitometric curve of radiographic film/screen combinations is described. The approach employs kVp variations at several mAs values to provide the necessary range of exposures. The method is simple and easy to perform and is presented along with experimental data for illustration. The sources and relative magnitude of errors associated with the technique are also discussed.
