Computed Rad Image plate/film classification

I would like to ask if anyone is aware of any work completed or in progress to classify the various image plates/films from the differing manufacturers.

Kind Regards Charlie Jackson

Hello Charlie,

yes of course, our authority for material testing ( BAM ) is responsible for research / development and classification. Please visit their webside ( www.bam.de ) and looking for
Uwe Zscherpel ( PHD.) ! I pretty know that he will be able to help you, and of course he can give you an overview what is available on the market.

BAM = Bundesanstalt für Materialprüfung !

Thanks Chris

Good Question.

A composition of plate types and equivalent exposure would be much appreciated. Like having R factor for film. However things tend to get get complicated with reusable media!

I did some work a few years back to compare the 3 main suppliers. Did not find a big difference with exposures. HR plates were marginally better with sensitivity.

Some plates had a thicker base which made them more difficult to bend.

I have not been in the CR business for about 4 years now so I am sure my data is no longer valid with today's improved plates
