When Should You Replace an Old X-Ray Grid?

2019-05-16T14:47:38+00:00

X-ray grids are often thought of something that you purchase, install, and never think about again. They are sitting in your bucky tray invisible to you, that is, until they are not. Oftentimes, when upgrading to digital x-ray from film, CR, or even an older DR detector, users see grid artifacts on their [...]

What Effect Does A Moving Grid Have on DR Images?

2019-05-08T18:07:05+00:00

JPI Healthcare Solutions frequently receives inquiries from both our dealer and end user networks. We very recently had a dealer inquire about the effect of a moving grid on images produced with Digital Radiography (DR) equipment. In short, the response is that the effects of moving grids on DR images are unpredictable and, [...]

Antiscatter Grids and Moire Elimination

2018-10-30T12:53:28+00:00

Since the development of the antiscatter grid in 1913, a major problem has been the resulting lines that can appear in the x-ray image. This critical defect created a risk of misdiagnosis by physicians. In 1920, Dr. Hollis Potter devised a solution for this problem by finding a movement patter that would eliminate [...]

More Frequently Asked Questions About Grids

2018-10-29T16:20:23+00:00

When two grids have the same specifications, why are their transmissions different? The reason is that the interspace width and height is different. As the x-ray interacts with different amounts of lead and aluminum, its attenuation changes. Do standard tests cover everything with regard to grid quality? Grid characteristics change with the x-ray [...]

Frequently Asked Questions About X-Ray Grids

2021-03-03T18:24:54+00:00

How does scatter radiation happen? In general, scatter radiation is Compton scatter radiation. This radiation usually occurs when x-ray interacts with matter. It occurs in medium and high energy range. When do you recommend the use of an x-ray grid? An x-ray grid is recommended when x-raying objects that are 10cm thick or [...]

DR Image Optimization with JPI’s Grid Solutions

2018-10-24T16:34:28+00:00

In Digital Radiography (DR), Moire is the appearance of wavy distortions in an image. It’s the result of interference between the antiscatter grid and the digital detector. Moire patterns are major physical effects that cannot be effectively removed by software. This makes proper diagnosis very difficult if not impossible. Historical Background Since antiscatter [...]
