Smit Röntgen, a leading manufacturer of fiber-interspaced grids, offers low-dose grids for DR and CR applications. The company’s full line of grid products are offered through Dunlee. The sole purpose of a grid is to improve the contrast in the final image by absorbing scatter radiation while maintaining the optimal transmission of primary radiation. In grid design, the interspace material used is critical to image quality and exposure rates. Fiber interspaced grids offer significant advantages over aluminum interspaced grids. Studies prove that fiber interspaced grids reduce the dosage to the patient by up to 40%. The lower technique factors needed per exposure with a fiber grid can also prolong the life of the X-ray tube.
