Radiology as science has the largest arsenal of various examination techniques. Radiologist should be acquainted with the rules of performing these various X-Ray examinations and be able to accurately analyze the colossal number of variants of the x-ray and shadow picture of the organs studied. All this requires quite a profound knowledge.

X-ray image interpretation is a complicated multi-stage process. All errors in X-ray image interpretation can be divided into the following categories:

  • photographic processing errors (overdevelopment – “veil”; underdevelopment – “dense” X-ray image with low contrast; non-observance of temperature regimes);
  • errors in the patient’s layout;
  • wrong choice of exposure conditions (results in the disappearance of parts of objects);
  • technical malfunction of the equipment;
  • errors in the storage of X-ray images.
