Paper Abstract

Six sources of inefficiency in the radiologic imaging process are outlined. Each source is subject to further improvement by a factor just less than two, leading to a possible overall improvement, or radiation reduction, of a factor 20 to 40. Practical technological considerations suggest that a six- to tenfold reduction is realizable over the next decade.
