Cine X-ray is technically the ideal method for recording fast events where the subject is optically obscured. However, practical problems have restricted its use to small subjects at speeds of a few hundred frames per second. Flash X-ray sources have been used instead and, although producing high quality images, the different aspect angle of each photograph complicates the analysis of the results. Several high speed eine X-ray systems have recently been developed and their performance is discussed.
