Abstract
The use of rare earth screens in diagnostic radiology results in new complexity. However, there is increased radiographic flexibility and diagnostic yield. Magnification techniques are enhanced and patient motion is minimized. The system considerations include higher ratio stationary grids, very fast exposure timing, smaller focal spot tubes and flat table tops. However, the nonlinearity of automatic exposure controls is a problem with the new phosphors and demands close attention.
