Abstract

The basic radiographic system (BRS) is a simplified version of a standard radiographic unit designed by the World Health Organization and the Pan American Health Organization. The design of the BRS includes the requirement that it should be able to perform routine radiographic examinations with a minimum of operator training. This report describes the performance of a BRS manufactured by Siemens. The physical parameters of this BRS were very good and operation should require a minimum of training. A small number of BRS films were compared with films obtained using the standard equipment in the department. The BRS films were generally regarded as satisfactory. Radiation exposure to patients is equal to, and in some cases less than, exposures with conventional X-ray units.
