Storage life of X-Rays

Is there an accelerated test to determine the storage life of X-Ray films ?

Thank You

The standard test used in the aerospace industrie is called a residual thiosulfate test. This is a test of an un-exposed film that has been developed, fixed and washed. Using the test method established by your film supplier a quanity of residual thiosulfates can be established based on that quanity the storage life for exposed film can be established.
Hope that helps.

is that test consistent with manually developed film ?

Yes, Although we only employ automatic processing I believe the test would be the same.

thanks for the reply, i was curious if using time and temp manually, would the temp change affect the results

Since the thiosulfates are removes at the fix/wash step the temp should not be a factor.

Yes you can use this on manual developed film. If I am not mistaken the results need to be interpreted right away. The one that I have used was manufactured by Kodak and over time the results were changed. So as far as I can remember you can not save the test data but you can always conduct another test in the spot in an audit.
