Recently, a new film for intraoral radiography was introduced, the Kodak Insight Dental film. The manufacturer claims that this film requires a reduced exposure time compared to Ektaspeed Plus-film, whereas other relevant film characteristics remained unchanged. These claims were investigated in this study. The exposure time of the Insight-film was on average 17% less than that of Ektaspeed Plus-film upon standard manual development, and 49% less than that of Kodak Ultraspeed-film. Compared to the E-speed film, the Insight-film has an identical gradient and spatial resolution (> 10 lp/mm). Compared to the D-speed film the gradient was larger, indicating a better contrast, whereas the resolution was the same. It was concluded that the Insight Dental film can be used in intraoral radiographic diagnosis.
