Tools To Improve Radiographic Quality

The following are the important tools to be considered and observed to improve radiographic quality so as yo yield a high quality radiograph, thus resulting to decrease repeat exposures leading to less patient dose: Patient Position Good knowledge of human anatomy Central axis/Central Ray Proper patient instruction Distance...

Primary Controlling Factors For Radiographic Contrast

The primary controlling factor for contrast in film-based imaging is kilovoltage or kV. Kilovoltage controls the energy or is the penetrating power of the primary beam. The higher the kV, the greater is the energy and the more uniformly the x-ray beam penetrates the various mass densities of...
