Hi, first post with a simple (ish) question
Hello, I'm a student and this is my first post! Sorry if it's not very exciting.
I have been considering the clinical consequences of some quality assurance test results. In one test, the tube output was measured against a baseline. at 100kVp and 20mAs the tube's output is 50% lower than the baseline (the baseline was 0.12cGy, FFD 100cm), and this occurs on every test. This may seem like a simple question, but when using this equipment what would the clinical consequences be and how would you guys overcome this problem?
I understand that there will be underexposure and increased skin dose, am I on the right track? I feel rather humbled asking this! lol!
