Are there special considerations for using X-ray grids in pediatric or geriatric imaging?

Yes, there are specific considerations when using X-ray grids in pediatric or geriatric imaging. In pediatric imaging, the primary concern is minimizing radiation dose while maintaining image quality. Using a grid with higher grid ratios may be necessary to enhance image contrast, but this also increases radiation exposure. Therefore, optimization of exposure factors and consideration of alternative techniques like close collimation are crucial to reduce dose without compromising image quality.

For geriatric imaging, factors such as increased tissue density, decreased tissue elasticity, and potential patient mobility issues must be considered. These factors can impact image quality and increase the risk of motion artifacts. Using a grid with appropriate ratio and frequency can help improve image contrast by reducing scatter radiation. Additionally, longer preparation time may be required to allow the patient to adapt and position themselves properly to prevent artifacts caused by shaking during exposure. We are a manufacturer of X-ray machines and their accessories.
