Abstract
It is frequently a task to calibrate the radiogram intensity in reference to the object thickness/density value. This knowledge is important when the radiographic densitometry, thickness measurements or precise computed tomography are required. Often aluminum is used as calibrating material and processed radiogram of the real object is evaluated as aluminum equivalent. This approach is qualitatively convenient for transmission radiograms; however, certain secondary artefacts remain in CT reconstructions. Fortunately the calibration function can be shaped using only one or two known thickness values of the object investigated. The shaped calibration function obtained produces the right signal to thickness relationship and CT quality is improved when it is applied.
