Abstract

An evaluation of certain radiographic factors affecting patient exposure during urography is made. Factors considered include selection of tube kilovoltage, total beam filtration and film-screen combination. The effect on image quality is also considered. Experimental results suggest specific actions which would result in decreased patient exposure without compromising quality of the examination.
