FOR USE WITH FILM PROCESSORS
Half Speed Blue Film is half speed, blue sensitive film that offers high contrast and low noise for extra sharp images. The film is perfect for general radiography, providing extra sharp images with outstanding detail and is compatible with all blue-emitting intensifying screens.
The use of GBX-2 (or equivalent) safelight filter is recommended. The filter should be utilized in conjunction with a 15 watt frosted bulb and positioned at least four feet from the unloading/loading area, and processor feed-tray.
Unopened, unexposed film should be stored at temperatures at or below 70 degrees F in a dry location, preferably between 30% and 50% relative humidity. Film should be protected from sources of ionizing radiation including x-ray scatter.
Radiomat Medical X-Ray Films are designed to be processed in automatic processors using “High Throughput”, standard, or extended cycles. When used in the standard 90 second cycle, a temperature of 95 degrees F is recommended. The films can also be processed manually. These robust films perform well in all quality developers and fixers.
Films should be handled by the edges; avoiding creasing, buckling and physical pressure. Avoid using hand lotions prior to handling films.
Even the small difference in absorption between soft tissue and air become visible by the varying density levels, thanks to the high contrast which also enhanced by the form of the shoulder of the sensitometric curve. The typical form of the sensitometric curve makes Radiomat film ideal for the imaging of bone structures, allowing even the detection of hairline fractures. The film is also suitable for orthopedics where it will give the fine details of bone structures, yet keeping the soft tissue visible. The film also offers good contrast in the main lung area, with good detail being obtained in the middle density areas. Summarizing, the Radiomat film can be considered as universal film, allowing the user to read necessary information quickly, thank to its high contrast, its low fog and low noise level.
