They were examined under artificial illumination and were radio-graphed using Trophy Panoramic X-ray unit, which operated at 15mA, the peak kilovoltage ranged from 70-90 depending on the estimate of the subjects jaw size.
The principal selectable parameters that contribute to radiation dose are tube current (mA), peak kilovoltage (kVp), pitch, and gantry cycle time (in seconds) (Table 1).
Based on observations in the 3 clinical settings after the installation of CR, radiography students noticed that peak kilovoltage (kVp) settings did not change but milliAmpere second (mAs) settings were doubled when compared to mAs settings used for 400 speed film/screen exposures.
