Abstract
The technique of relating tube kilovoltage in x-radiography to material density and thickness has been used successfully in high-quality radiography of equivalent steel thicknesses of 1-1/2 in. and less with 260 kvp x-ray equipment and lead intensifying screens. Consideration is given to the increased intensification from fluorescent screens to determine whether greater thicknesses could be radiographed under the same conditions of exposure time and source-to-film distance, without undue loss of sensitivity.
