exposure factor standardization
in radiology is the elimination of variation as much as possible in as many as possible factors which affect the optimum exposure time. Includes using a standard anode-film distance, use of the same chemicals and preparation technique, eliminating surges and drops in input voltage, and use of the same screen-film combination.
