An intensifying screen is a thin sheet of cardboard, celluloid or plastic that is placed in contact with the X-ray film in a cassette; it is commonly used in pairs, one on either side of the film.
Intensifying screens should not be ordered individually, as the size varies slightly according to brand. Always indicate the brand name and manufacturing date, if possible. Otherwise, a complete new cassette will be sent.
