Abstract
A method is described that can be applied in a clinical environment to measure the linepairs/mm resolution, to test the electro-optical focusing, and to measure a quantity Q proportional to the conversion factor of x-ray image intensifiers. The resolution can be determined and electronically optimized by using a monocular of 7.3-12x power to view the image of a metal test pattern placed at the entrance plane of the intensifier. To determine Q, a photometer is used to measure the brightness of the output screen as a function of input exposure rate. The measured data can be fitted with a straight line, the slope of which is proportional to the conversion factor of the image intensifier. According to the results the precision in the measurements of Q was better than 5%.
