Artifacts: Digital – Computed Radiography (CR) / phosphor plates

Increased density E (increased exposure to x rays) E =↑ Exposure (x rays) This occurs when the phosphor plate is overexposed (i.e. using a molar setting for an anterior radiograph). Increased density due to incorrect time setting. Decreased density E (decreased exposure to x rays) E (increased exposure to visible […]

Digital radiography: Basics

This will be the first of a new series on digital radiography. I won’t be going into deep detail about the mechanisms of how the different digital radiography systems work but more covering things that a salesperson may tell you or that you’ll see in ads and how to discern […]
