Abstract : A prototype cinefluorographic system operable to 500 frames per second was assembled to test the feasibility of high-speed x-ray cinematography. The stop-motion capability of the device is absolute for biomedical research and is based upon a repetitively pulsing flash x-ray source with a 30-nsec exposure time. A discussion of repetition rate and resolution-limiting factors is presented in depth.
