  • AP thoracic spine

  • AP hip
  • Axillary view of the shoulder

Wedge Use Detail:

  • PA chest
    It is used to improved PA chest x-rays on women when the densities of the breasts require an technique that overexposes the apices. The filter balances the density between both of these regions.

  • AP thoracic spine
    It has application on the AP thoracic spine view to reduce overexposure of the lower cervical and demonstrate an even density from T-12 to the lower cervical spine.

  • Upright & Decubitus abdomens
    It is used for upright and decubitus abdomens. On the upright abdomen the lower lung fields will maintain the proper viewing density. Using the filter on the decubitus abdomen will reduce the overexposure of the side of the abdomen that is up.

  • AP and Y view of the shoulder
    The filter can be used for both the AP and Y view of the shoulder to improve visualization of the AC joint.

  • AP hip
    Using the filter for the AP hip on emaciated patients reduces the overexposure of the greater trochanter.

  • Axillary view of the shoulder
    The density of the shoulder joint on the axillary view can be increased without overexposing the humerous.
