Quotes

From the background information supplied by the inventors, news correspondents obtained the following quote: "When an x-ray image is obtained, there is generally an optimal distance and angle between the radiation source and the two dimensional receiver that records the image data. In most cases, it is preferred that the x-ray source provide radiation in a direction that is perpendicular to the surface of the recording medium. For this reason, large-scale radiography systems mount the radiation head and the recording medium holder at a specific angle relative to each other. Orienting the head and the receiver typically requires a mounting arm of substantial size, extending outward well beyond the full distance between these two components. With such large-scale systems, source-to-image distance (SID) is tightly controlled and unwanted tilt or skew of the receiver is thus prevented by the hardware of the imaging system itself. Further, because the spatial positioning and geometry of conventional large-scale systems is well-controlled, proper use and alignment of a grid, positioned in front of the imaging receiver, is straightforward."
