This equalizing x-ray filter reduces overexposure to the cervical spine to produce a balanced density from C-1 to T-1. It is used with CR and DR and film for lateral hip and swimmers view and reduces excessive radiation by filtering before it reaches the patient. Application for lateral cervical spines with CR @ 72" increases information on the lower cervical and upper thoracic, often reducing need for a swimmer view.
