Using the Tru-Align with your x-ray head results in a 60-70% reduction in radiation exposure. With a round cone radiation exits in a spread pattern. About 10% of the beam actually hits the receptor. Radiation is thus scattered into the patient’s tissues or reflected back onto the receptor as “noise” or “fog”, compromising the image resolution.
Tru-Align acts like a magnifying scope. The beam is only 2% larger than the receptor. There is almost no scatter effect – noise – resulting in clearer, crisper images with greatly improved image resolution.
