PURPOSE Exposure creep is the gradual increase in x-ray exposures over time that results in increased radiation dose to the patient. It has been theorized as being a phenomenon that results from the wide-exposure latitude of computed radiography (CR) and direct/indirect digital radiography (DR). This project evaluates radiographic exposures over 43 months to determine if exposure creep exists and if measures can be applied to halt or reverse exposure creep trends. METHODS Exposure indices… CONTINUE READING
