Radiographic Units, Podiatric
Definition : Radiographic units that include an x-ray generator, a collimator, a high-resolution image receptor, an exposure timer, patient positioning features, and a control panel. Most of these units have an x-ray tube arm that swings and locks in any position for different projections (i.e., from full right to full left). Podiatric radiographic units may be wall- or floor-mounted, and some are mobile. These units are designed specifically for imaging the feet and are used mostly in podiatric offices.
