Paper Abstract

For a given patient (attenuator) thickness, substantial differences in the x-ray tube potential can be observed on the image intensified fluoroscopic x-ray installations equipped with kVp variable automatic brightness stabilization (ABS) circuitry. The ftinctional behavior of such fluoroscopic x-ray equipment is investigated through measurement of (1) the fluoroscopic x-ray tube potential, (2) the fluoroscopic x-ray tube current, (3) pie entrance exposure rate, and (4) the exit exposure rate as functions of the attenuator thickness.
