Swimmers / Lateral Hip Filter
This x-ray filter has two primary uses: lateral hip and swimmers view for use with CR and DR and film. No positioning is required - just move it in until it stops; they are already centered! Tech Proof with a stainless steel base custom fit for all x-ray machines (including portables). Excessive radiation is also reduced by filtering before it reaches the patient!
Swimmers Features: Image improvement with the use of the swimmers filter. This equalizing x-ray filter reduces overexposure to the cervical spine to produce a balanced density from C-1 to T-1.
Lateral Hip Features: Application for lateral cervical spines with CR @ 72" to increase information on the lower cervical and upper thoracic, very often reducing the need for a swimmer view.
The x-ray filter increases visual detail through additional coning. The lead coning rails assure proper coning at 40 inches. It creates a border one inch wide on the length of the image
