Description / Abstract:

1. Scope

1.1 This test method determines the maximum x-ray sensitivity coefficient (slope of diffuse visual density versus x-ray exposure) of film/processing combinations for low quantities of x-ray exposure to silver halide photographic film. This coefficient can be used to assess the relative susceptibility of films to damage from x-ray exposure, such as that encountered in airport and similar security screening systems.

1.2 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
