      A quick-developng solution (Soludent) and a new developer (Kodak GBX) were compared with a standard x-ray liquid developer. Of the three solutions evaluated, Kodak GBX solution produced slightly greater useful densities in the radiograph at all temperatures evaluated. The rapid-developing solution produced acceptable radiographs in 80% less time, with only slightly higher film fog.
