PID's / Cones
Rectangular Position Indicating Devices
(OPEN END LEAD-LINED CONE)
The rectangular collimation concept offers the maximum in x-radiation protection by reducing the area of tissue exposure to a minimum.
Available in three lengths:
The SHORT PID (8" Source-to-Skin Distance) is for the bisecting angle technique, or the standard practice of the profession
The INTERMEDIATE PID (12" S.S.D.) is used where operatory space is limited and the LONG CONE technique is desired.
The LONG PID (16" S.S.D.) is for the Long Cone Paralleling technique, or where undistorted x-rays are desired.
The Alara Rectangular Cone comes with 2 alignment rings.
