1) CONTROL PANEL USE DIGITAL AND
SEPARATE CONTROL PANEL
digital control panel because it automatically calculate the mAs.
separate control panel to prevent x-ray being released in the wrong room
because in case of an emergency mistake is easily done due to the chaotic
also can work faster because they can make projection without waiting another room
use the control panel to settle their projection
control panel should also have a telecom to facilitate the instructions to the
patient when the door is closed.
2)GENERATOR USE FALLING-LOAD GENERATOR
Falling-Load Generator because it usually are specially designed high-frequency
generators. They begin the exposure with high amperage and then allowing it to
fall during exposure. It also permit greater use of the acceptable tube limits.
load generator also utilizes the tube’s loading potential to a much greater
extent than the constant-potential generator.
3) ANODE USE ROTATING ANODE X-RAY TUBE
the case of a rotating anode tube, the heat of the incoming cathode beam is
scatter evenly across the entire surface of the anode as it rotates. This
enables radiographers use rotating anode to perform longer scans and at higher
radiographer intend to perform longer scans like run-offs or cross laterals, or
scans requiring higher dose for larger patients, radiographer will be sending a
lot more electricity into the cathode and a lot more heat to the anode. In this
situation, the superior heat dispersal of the rotating anode will serve well.
collimator to permits an infinite number of field sizes. It also providing a
light source for radiographer as an aid
in properly placing the tube and central ray.
collimator image quality can be improved and patients dose can be minimized
shutters to regulate the field size. Bottom shutters reduce penumbra along
periphery of beam because of their greater distance from the focal spot. Upper
shutters of collimater help in reducing the amount of off-focus radiation
reaching the image receptor by absorbing this radiation before it exits the

with lead for additional absorption at the cathode end.
window to permit unrestricted exit for the useful photons from the envelope
6) RADIOGRAPIC TUBESTAND OVERHEAD TUBESTAND
provide high performance, versatility and durability when performing various
types of examinations
freestanding, overhead tube version must have horizontal and vertical movements
electromagnetic locking and dual rope counterbalancing system for precise
exposure positioning, maximum stability and safety for both the radiographer
and the patient.

7) TABLE BUCKY
Heavy-duty, compact, space-saving design provides exceptional
versatility and allows for installations in small x-ray rooms
tabletop material low absorption reduces
exposure dose rate while the small skin-film distance permits precise low
magnification film studies.
standard side rails support a wide variety of accessories.
