Even At Six Feet Away, X-ray Scatter Can Image Your Hand

Most radiologic technologists know that it’s best to stand six feet away from the patient during an exam, but they may not be aware that a small amount of scatter is still created – in some cases, it’s enough to make the tech’s hand bones clearly visible.

Dennis Bowman, who works as radiographer at a hospital on California’s Central Coast and also lectures on best dose practices in radiography through his company, Digital Radiography Solutions, recently conducted an experiment to measure just how much scatter is created by an anteroposterior chest X-ray. The results were recently re-posted on the website for the California Society of Radiologic Technologists.
