Exams such as cross table hips and/or lumbar spine (L5/S1) require increased exposure techniques and can be tricky to position. Couple that with the removal of the lead lining on the back of DR panels due to a constant push for DR panel weight reduction, which can lead to undesired results. Backscatter can cause a very specific artifact in a radiographic DR image. You will clearly see the internal components of the DR panel on the x-ray. This will result in a repeat exam and a very frustrated user and patient. Our line of Lead Backers can reduce backscatter and resolve this imaging artifact.
