Interesting post Allan C. I have worked in the industry for many years and find it strange/unbelievable that so many X-Rays have failed to show the extent of Ann's fracture's if any, 17 is such a high number of exposures to find an anomaly in the bone structure, I would not expect the equipment to be at fault, no matter how old. X-Ray is an exact science in ALL applications of use. The underlaying factors for a readable detection are: A. Exposure time. B. Focal point and distance. C. Source & strength. D. Film grade, speed & Quality. E. Film development time, F. Age and temperature of chemicals used and stop time. Finally the interpratation of radiographs by qualified and certified personnel. Get one wrong and their ALL wrong. |
