A theoretical derivation for the point spread function (PSF) which describes the veiling glare in x-ray image intensifiers (II) is presented. The PSF is dependent on two parameters which can be determined experimentally for a given II. An experimental investigation of the linearity of veiling glare phenomenon is undertaken. The experimental results indicate that veiling glare could be described as a linear process to a high degree of accuracy.
