Charge

To establish a methodology for the development of pediatric technique charts for CR/DR based on the goal of obtaining consistent, appropriate detector air kerma. This TG aims to provide a scientific method to consistently deliver desired detector air kerma across a wide range of patient sizes and clinical conditions. Specifically, the TG report is to include:

  1. Methods to ensure consistent and appropriate air kerma at the detector entrance plane, under both automatic and manual exposure modes, based on knowledge of generator/tube performance from physics testing results.
  2. Guidelines for optimization of generator settings for a given detector air kerma and patient thickness to minimize beam-on time and ensure reproducible exposures. (e.g. focal spot size, mA/mS settings, kVp)
  3. Guidelines for additional optimization of patient entrance air kerma for given detector air kerma and generator settings
