Paper Radiography - Density Measurement

I am dealing with a problem using radiography with a paper, rather than film, imaging medium. We need to establish reasonable densities for radiograph acceptability, and cannot locate any solid information regarding density specification on paper (plenty about film, though). Ultimately, I would like to have an idea if there is any useful correlation between film (transmitted light) and paper (reflected light).
Thank you for your help.

If the paper is translucent, which is often the case, you may still be able to use the densitometer readings, either zeroing in the base paper electronically, and directly reading the darkened areas, or by subtracting the density of the paper mathematically from that of the image.

If the image is actually digital, and you just want to print out the image on paper, you may want to make a test printout on a piece of mylar and make the initial measurements there.

I looked in our archives, and have come up with more useful information than before.

When we used to use Kodak Industrex 600 paper, we were to use "Publication No. Q-16, Kodak 24-Step Refelection Density Guide," to establish our densities. BTW, the acceptable range at the time was 0.4 to 1.0, with 0.7 considered optimum.

According to the Kodak website, though reflection densitometers are available, Publication Q-16 is still available.

...
nresolved asset integrity problem in the industry. Current methods for measuring wall thickness with liftoff, without removing insulation, all have severe limitations. Eddyfi introduces Lyft — a reinvented, high-performance pulsed eddy current (PEC) solution. The patent- pending system features a state-of-the-art portable instrument, real- time C-scan imaging, fast data acquisition with grid-mapping and dynamic scanning modes, and flexibility with long cables. It can also scan through thick metal and insulation, as well as aluminum, stainless steel, and galvanized steel weather jackets. Who else but Eddyfi to reinvent an eddy current technique and redefine CUI programs. Got Lyft?
