Abstract

This study compared the imaging performance of a photostimulable phosphor system with E speed film for dental radiography. The response of each imaging system was measured as a function of radiation exposure. Measurements were also made of imaging performance in terms of the limiting spatial resolution and low contrast detectability. Photostimulable phosphors had a wider dynamic range in comparison with film. The limiting spatial resolution of the photostimulable phosphor was approximately 6.5 lp/mm and independent of image magnification. For film, the limiting spatial resolution was in the range 11 to 20 lp/mm depending on image magnification. At the same radiation exposure, low contrast detectability of the photostimulable phosphor was superior to that of film. Major benefits of photostimulable phosphor systems include the elimination of chemical processing and an improved low contrast detectability performance.
