Technique for Chest Radiography for Pneumoconiosis.
American College of Radiology, Chicago, Illinois 1982:145 pages
This guide was intended to assist the user in obtaining good quality roentgenograms. It was the product of the efforts of many radiologists and highly qualified technologists working to produce films of optimum technical quality for the study of pneumoconioses while restricting the radiation dose to the patient to a minimum. Specific topics considered individually included: chest radiography for the detection and study of pneumoconioses; equipment requirements and the use of the test phantom; positioning of the patient; technique guides for consistently good radiographic quality; good radiographs obtained through the proper use of the darkroom (included manual and automatic processing, storage of films and use of safe lights); the physical basis for optimum chest radiography (included a discussion of the major problems in interpretation of radiographs and in radiographic technique); control of scattered radiation by means of collimation, grids or air gaps; the blurring and quality assurance of the screen; the choice of film/screen combinations; sensitometric monitoring for film quality; and radiation protection.
