Grid locked - why you still need X-ray grids


One of the major causes of loss of image quality on radiographs is scatter occurring within the patient. We have all been used to using anti-scatter grids for film images, but unfortunately many people are not aware how important they still are on both CR and DR system. These images we taken on the same 25kg dog, on the same day on a CR system, the only difference was the use of a grid, and the altering of the exposure to allow for this.

Scatter still occurs no matter what the receptor is, and if you have been advised that if you have ‘gone digital, you don’t need a grid’ this is not true. If you want more help, or advice on choosing a grid, please get in touch
