When the latent images formed by exposure with incident particles in the phosphor of Imaging Plate (IP) are irradiated with laser beam, photo-stimulated luminescence (PSL) is emitted and read through a photomultiplier. PSL intensity fades with increasing the elapsed time between the exposure and the PSL reading. When the IP is read successively, the PSL intensities decrease with the number of reading times. The tendency of the decreasing becomes gradual with increasing the elapsed time after exposure. The multiple successive reading method gives the means of the correction of the fading.
