    I followed through and read the pdfs, all to no avail. There's very little info. Single sided? Double sided?....

    Proudly manufactured in Rochester, NY in the USA, Kodak now offers an optimized product range and competitive pricing!

    Yes, but it may be very expensive and require all kinds of cost added features such as MIL SPEC and other definitions with certifications for advanced structure examination.

    It also may be a way of using huge old rolls of Medical grade which is nearly obsolete in USA.

    Kodak realized that people are using the x-ray film because it is way cheaper than the regular film. Therefore, this is a way of increasing the price of the old stock they have.

    Our usage of X-Ray film is tiny.

    Heck I cut it up for small format.

    I also stocked up some time ago as some is now unavailable anywhere.

    Such as 14X17 Ektascan.

    My dentist used something connected to a laptop on me yesterday, and showed me the results on a TV. The contraption was larger than to old bitewings of yore and not as comfortable, but I persevered. Luckily, I haven't needed any other x-rays in a while, so I'm not sure what they are using in other settings.

    One of them can be exposed directly with x-rays -- "And its versatility allows you to have direct x-ray or intensification screen options." Interesting.

    Re: Kodak introduces new x-ray film

    That's is surprising, but good news. I've always wanted to try those BR/A but put off buying because I've got a few of Carestream Insight Thoracic film. It's supposed to be a fine grade of X-ray film for better resolution, but that's just my guess since I have not shot it yet. I believe it's single sided emulsion, the other side has a special dye. Anyone have experience with these? Any difference between Carestream Insight and BR/A film?
