General technical ALARA strategies to reduce exposure include: 1) weight-based protocols for radiation parameters (eg, kilovoltage, kV; milliamperage, mAs); and, 2) body and selective organ protective shielding.
Close proximity is obtained by ensuring that a twitch response is obtained at a low milliamperage current (typically [less than or equal to] 0.
Additionally, the 2 tubes can be operated independently at different kilovoltage peak (kVp) and milliamperage (mAs) settings.
