Data for screen-film combinations suitable for panoramic radiography were obtained from the Eastman Kodak Company, Rochester, New York. Image resolution was calculated at various object depths with the use of system data for the Panorex 2 unit (S. S. White Company, Holmdel, New Jersey). An experimental test was performed in which clinicians ranked the various combinations with respect to diagnostic quality. The rankings by the observers generally reflected the resolution of the screen-film combinations.
