Optimising Your Digital Radiography
Digital radiographs are now widespread in veterinary practice but the transition to digital does not always mean better image quality.
This short course will help you understand what your digital system is and will review simple radiographic principles to improve your image quality. You will learn how to share your digital images for a second opinion and develop a better understanding of how to get the sharpest lung detail, the best abdominal contrast and the crispest trabecular bone detail.
Note: Participants will need access to a functional X-ray tube and digital radiography unit. If they have film-screen radiography, they may still do the course but may not be able to implement some of the learning outcomes.
