Densitometric evaluation of E-speed film with three different developing solutions


Background: In order to determine the influence of different solutions on the quality of the radiograph, the purpose of this study is to have a comparison between solutions to see the best one produce radiographs of highly diagnostic ability.Material and method: An aluminum step wedge was radiograph with E-Speed periapical films of the films were developed in three different processing solutions at standardized conditions according to manufacture’s instructions data concerning film density, contrast, fog and speed film. Each film solution combination was compiled in attempted to evaluate optimal film –solution combination.Results: In present study better contrast and less film fog obtained with technique C solution, for film speed, higher speed values indicate lower exposure time to patient.Conclusion: The rapid processing solution deteriorated faster and need less processing time than conventional solutions
