  1. This white paper examines a direct comparison of digital CR imaging vs. analog film on a large diameter pipeline project constructed in January of 2016. The trial was intended to examine the production capabilities and image quality of CR digital images in a direct comparison to film. Take a look!

CR Can It Work in the Canadian Oil Patch

2. This paper shows how the physical interaction between gamma rays and front metallic screens can yield a significant boost in signal and whether that increased signal is, in fact, beneficial or detrimental to image quality.

PRACTICAL CONSIDERATIONS AND EFFECTS OF METALLIC SCREEN FLUORESCENCE AND BACKSCATTER CONTROL IN GAMMA COMPUTED RADIOGRAPHY

3.  This presentation reviews the basic principles of storage phosphor imaging plates. Usage criteria and guidelines for optimum image quality and maximized overall use cycles will be discussed for various imaging plate types. A comparison of film and computed radiography imaging plate technology will be presented.
