1 All modern radiographic and fluoroscopic equipment is constructed to prevent an SSD less than 12 inches (30 cm). Collimation of X-Ray Beam The beam of radiation must be restricted to irradiate only the anatomy of interest. This restriction of the x-ray beam, called collimation, serves two purposes. First, it minimizes the amount of radiation to the patient by restricting exposure to essential anatomy only. Second, it reduces the amount of scatter radiation that can reach the IR, which reduces the potential for a reduction in contrast resolution (Fig.

Scatter and secondary radiation have reduced radiographic contrast and poor-quality image results. B, Collimator set correctly to 8 × 10 inches (18 × 24 cm), improving radiographic contrast and visibility of detail. Gonad Shielding The patient’s gonads may be irradiated when radiographic examination of the abdomen, pelvis, and hip area is performed. When practical, gonad shielding should always be used to protect the patient. Contact, shadow, and large part area shields are used for radiographic examinations (Figs.

R and L markers must be used with CR and DR digital imaging. The development of digital imaging and the use of CR and DR have enabled an environment in which the R and L markers can be placed on the image electronically at the computer workstation. This is not recommended because of the great potential for error and legal implications; this is especially true when patients are examined in the prone position. Anatomic markers should be placed on the CR cassette or the DR table similar to screenfilm cassettes.
