Abstract
Routine radiographic chest examinations have been performed under various radiological conditions that have utilized differences of x-ray tube potential, intensifying screen, source-to-image receptor distance (SID), grid, etc. In the process of acquiring chest radiographic equipment for our new radiology facility, purchase specifications were formulated. The specifications were designed so that the x-ray unit would accommodate multiple methods of routine radiographic chest examination. It was to be equipped with an automatic film changer and an automatic film processor. The operation modality of this unit encompasses most, if not all, presently utilized routine radiographic examinations for chest. The specifications of this idealized unit are based on clinical requirements and technological requirements, but at the same time conform with all applicable regulatory restrictions.
