High-speed, medium- to high-contrast blue-sensitive, universal film for general radiography.

Key benefits

  • Consistently high image quality, thanks to disc grain technology.
  • Suitable for a wide range of applications.
  • Very good visibility of relevant details in both low- and high-density areas.

CP-BU new is a universal film with a constant and high image quality thanks to Agfa's Disc Grain technology.

CP-BU NEW film is used in combination with blue-emitting rare earth and calcium tungstate intensifying screens. It excels in consistency: the disc grain technology keeps image quality at a high level, even when the film is processed in weaker chemicals or unfavorable conditions. CP-BU NEW also has a low sensitivity to desensitizing marks..

With its characteristic curve, it is ideal for obtaining high-quality images of the lung, diaphragm, retrocardial, mediastinal and spinal areas. On the one hand, the contrast of the middle section and in the shoulder of the curve is sufficient to guarantee excellent visualization of all relevant details in applications, such as bone work and angiography. All lungfield structures are very clearly presented as well. On the other hand, the toe of the curve displays the information in low-density areas very well.
